    Alcoholism coms in a whole lot of different forms.

    One drinks every day, the other drinks every now and then, and does this till he or she drops, one drinks in a social enviroment, the other stay's alone at home.

    In all cases it's the first class that does pull the trigger.

    By not drinking it, you'll never capable of getting drunk.

    Just keep on comming back and maybe try to find a suport group.

    Good luck,

    Escar

    I think you have to treat alcohol as a Demon.  When you haven't had a drink he can't get in and cause havoc.  But once you open the door to him with your first drink, he then takes over and HE is in control, not you.  He wants to stay in control, so he tells you how good it would be to have more and more.

    When I quit smoking years ago, I was told to think of nicotine as a Demon and it helped me very much to have something almost tangible to fight against.  Different things work for different people and I hope you find your answer, it frightens me to think of you walking in the dark, alone.
