Yes, this drug I speak of is alcohol. Legal in nearly all countries, but ever so dangerously addictive. Don’t fool yourself if you think that you can drop it, once you’ve started using. Once it’s in your blood stream it’s there forever.

I'm not saying this is your case , I just remembered something about my life ! I always considered myself a happy person and a happy drunk ( unless there was tequila involved !! ) it wasn't until I sobered up and started having long discussions with my kids , who are grown up now , about how they saw me when they were young and also talking with family and friends . I wasn't the person I thought I was , I was far from the happy go lucky guy who was the life of the party !! I was very blaming and resentful , you couldn't talk to me till my hangover was gone after 4 or 5 beers ! I usually started the party in a good mood but either someone had to get me home or put me up for the night because I passed out or if I blacked out I would hear about it next day what an A- hole I was ! Just wanted to share that were not always who we think we are in the throws of addiction !
