Just a though for the alky

"We must be careful never to show intolerance or hatred of drinking as an institution. Experience shows that such an attitude is not helpful to anyone. We are not fanatics or intolerant of people who can drink normally. Prospects are relieved when they find we are not witch burners.

Temperate drinking is okay, but we alcoholics can't get away with it. And no alcoholic likes to be told about alcohol by anyone who hates it. We shall be of little use if our attitude is one of bitterness or hostility.

Above is taken form the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Turns out a bunch of drunks got together many years ago and found a solution to the age old problem of alcoholism. It's the same solution that has helped me stay sober for nearly eight years. If you have a problem with alcohol, you might, just might want to give it a look.
