    Hi musse. I'm not an alcoholic, I'm in Al-Anon (which is an entirely different disease) my father was a charming drunk, though I did not know him well. He went to live with my stepmother to Venezuela. and the most time we spent together added up would be aprox two years. He passed away in 2002. My first GF, or rather my first religion ( It's more honest to say I have religions with women instead of relationships) was a drunk/speed freak--and I had no clue. My ex-wife is a sober alcoholic in AA for over 25 years, she's doing OK

    --So I have a little bit of second hand knowledge . . .

    Frankly, I envy alcoholics in the EARLY stage of their drinking. (I know that if I could have felt instantly high, confident, handsome, fearless, and happy merely by drinking a bottle of whiskey, I would have ended in the gutter years ago.) However, as the disease progresses--well reality is rather unavoidable--

    Something you said triggered a memory: " never seen the point of drinking if the goal is not to be intoxicated."

    My first date with my ex. She had a year's sobriety in AA and assured me it wouldn't bother her at all if I had a glass of wine with my dinner. I did.

    But she kept looking at it and back at me, bewildered.

    Finally she asked: "How do you do it? "

    I didn't know what she was talking about.

    She meant how could I nurse a glass of wine without ordering --at least---the whole bottle and proceed to get totally plastered.

    I told her I had a secret scroll from The Dalai Lama.
    She has a wonderful laugh.

    After I went to open AA meetings I realized ALL shared the same TRUTH: What's the point of drinking unless you're going to get shitfaced?
    Who are these weirdos who can have a couple of drinks and stop because they simply don't want any more?
    Weirdos?
    To the alcoholic, we're freaks.
    Thank God for A.A.
    It must be painful living in a world full of freaks.

    "Ive never used drugs, other than prescribed benzodiazepines (never even smoked pot) and alcohol."

    The story of my life. I, too, haven`t used any "real" drugs in my life (although I must admit I have been more than curious, and still awaiting for someone to actually offer me some of the "real" stuff...), but with alcohol and benzoes I am more than just familiar. Together and apart.
