fusillade762: Was there a point to that article?


Alcholic Salon writer proud of staying sober in the face of temptation. Basically blogging, with the name of a large company on the letterhead.

That, when you are an alcoholic, you always try to put a fantasy slant on your drinking, but at the end of the day, you are just a pathetic drunk looking for an excuse to get schlossed.

And she resisted the temptation. She recognized that it was fantasy and it would ruin her. Of course, she'll have to remind herself every day that it's fantasy.


And good for her, really. I lost a few members of my family to alcoholism. Almost lost my dad. Also, that's an illustration that, once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic. She's just in remission, and has to remind herself that every time.

Good for her. I've known too many alcoholics in my life...and only one that found sobriety (5 years now).

Alchoholics don't need an excuse.

bump: I also feel saddened to see the obvious influence of AA dogma.

If THAT isn't the ultimate indicator of denial, I don't know what is.

Or just shake it off and ease up on the bottle for a month or two. I always figured if people don't have enough sense to come in out of the rain, let them stay wet. I usually only have two / three drinks, but if I'm in the mood to go long, fark it. Life is short! I don't know why people beat them selves up for who they are.
