The Eye Opener
Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016
Comparatively early in our drinking careers, we knew our principle fault was our drinking, and we even knew but would not admit that our other faults were the offspring of the first.
We changed brands, we switched from whiskey to beer, we changed our drinking companions, we put more time between drinks, we changed jobs, wives, localities. Somehow it never occurred to us that the only way to deal with our drinking was to abandon it to a slow death by starvation.
You can’t shoot, drown or strangle alcoholism, but you can abandon it.
