I started as a "social" drinker and wound up talking to tormenting ghosts years later.

I started as a "social" drinker at 17 and later, in mty mid-30s, I wound up talking to tormenting ghosts for a week, jail cells. incomprehensible demoralisation and an asylum for a day. Later released after being "of no danger to others or self". That was nine years ago and three years ago, respectively. I am 10 months and 1 day "sober" today. My name is Richard and I am an alcoholic.

The following is medical report on chronic alcoholism. The same happened to me. Please note; I started as a "social" drinker.
