I learned to define my "condition" in rehab. today in a fashion I find both appropriate and helpful. You see it seems I have developed an allergic reaction to the consumption of alcohol. It works like this.
"I am allergic to alcohol. When I drink, I break out in handcuffs."
I am coming to occasionally "enjoy" having (or more appropriately accepting that I have) my new condition.
All the best,
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
