    i dunno. i'm not an alcoholic but i would think if you worked so hard on your sobriety, it would be hard to live with someone who is not supportive. that is pretty sad.

    Totally!


    I wonder if this is why alcoholics are always in “recovery” rather than being “cured” due to always being an alcoholic and the first step (of wanting a drink) never goes away?
    I guess this is what addiction is?
    Unless one sorts out the reason that one is an addict in the first place, it will always be there?

    As a recovering alcoholic ( almost eight years) I don’t crave it anymore but I know if I start I won’t be able to stop. I might be able to control it for a while but it will overtake me eventually.

    Yeah, I "quit" smoking 6 years ago (after over 30 years). I always say I've stopped as I won't know that I've actually quit until I die. The craving is there every single day. If I were to have one, I'd smoke a carton of 'em.

    Hugs, Fly. Fighting the good fight is hard, but knowing your boundaries is key.

    I think I find this worrying as I try to get a grip on my food issues, that it will never go away.

    Yep, it's been 4 1/2 years for me and I know that if I were to have one, I'd go right back. Many of my friends still smoke so I'm constantly around it and for the most part I have no cravings but every now and again, I really want one.

    If there's a thing that can be addictive, I'm usually on patrol, fighting it, or wondering if I should try it. I've found success (incomplete, mind you) with distraction. Hugs, Novice, the struggle is real.

    When I quit, I did fine until I would get upset about something....then the cravings came like a tidal wave. When my sister died and then I went through a break up with a toxic guy, I low key started back up again but was able to recognize it was grief/stress triggered.

    Hmm, sounds like damage control to me. It would be great if Demi said something else to set him off, but maybe that's too much to hope for.

    "I'm an alcoholic. I don't have one drink. [pauses] I don't understand people who have one drink. I don't understand people who leave half a glass of wine on the table. I don't understand people who say they've had enough. How can you have enough of feeling like this? How can you not want to feel like this longer? [pauses, sighs] My brain works differently." - Leo McGarry, The West Wing

    I have no idea if this is how it works but John Spencer, who played Leo and an alcoholic himself, said it's very accurate to how he felt about it.
