    Love it...couldn't agree more....that is addictive thought pattern at its best!

    Jack...thanks for your input......agree w/you on the etoh is a drug...PERIOD....

    Why in the world would anyone even flirt with a substance that has the potential for abuse when they are an addict???? Why? I don't get it....again that's for ME and MY recovery. If an addict can "handle" taking Xanax as prescribed, then more power to em....I cannot imagine me doing that...nor can I imagine me going to the bar and having a "few drinks"....

    To the op, I don't think you are in recovery so good luck and I hope you never go down the path allot of us have had to go down!

    No. I heard people unable to separate what we are discussing, which is medication taken as prescribed, with the issue of addiction and assuming that their experience transcends all.
