Hi Milo,

So called 'alcoholics' come in many different versions, when you really break it down, but to the outsider it's most often the one that has made a big mess of things that gets the stamp 'alcoholic'.

In short, the 'real' alcoholic is someone who drinks because alcohol 'does something for them'. It changes the way they feel - makes them feel normal - more real! In a very twisted way it is the alcoholics 'way-out' - his/hers Prozak.

So the problem with the 'real' alcoholic is already there before he/she takes the first drink - a sense of unease, apartness, not belonging...

Drinking takes a way the problem and then brings on a whole new set of trouble and then the devilish loop begins:
I feel bad = I drink = I feel good = I feel better = I am drunk = I make a mess of things = I wake up = I'm in one bad place = I feel bad = I know a solution = I take a drink = This time it will be different = I feel better = I am drunk...

But like I said in the beginning; there are many different drinkers out there.
Some just drink too much and stop without any trouble when the right time comes.
The main trouble with the 'real' alcoholic is that if you take the drink away, you take away the solution / the fixing element to the soul-trouble.

So! What's the 'real' solution? :)

If you want to find out - go to: www.xa-speaker.org - and hear it from the source.

All the best,
ingi
