    I am a recovering alcoholic that is drunk.  Does that mean I am a recovering soberholic?

    I thought perhaps you were a little drunk...... you are really funny. Maybe you are just having a small set back, are you drinking now

      Yes, but I never thought I was an actual alcoholic.  My ex-wife just told me I was.  That doesn't necessarily make me an alcoholic.

        are you an alcoholic

          imadorkposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          No.  I have drank a little since I have stopped.  Therefore, if I just drink a little after stopping from a supposed alcoholic state, I am not an alcoholic.  Right now, I have drunk a lot though.

            it's understandable with all that is happening in your life...... are you going to give the drink a rest for a while, have you eaten.....do i sound like your mother

    Read my hubs.  I'm actually very funny in some of them.  Also...buy the Amazon items I have posted in the ads.  It will help me pay the mortgage I cannot afford.

        You are so sweet, Brenda.  I could easily chair an AA meeting. smile

        imadorkposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I think it is an anti-AA meeting.  I hate AA.  It is a way for the religious groups to indoctrinate the weak.

                  thanks for those wise words, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you are not really helping the situation here, this is not a religious forum thanks a lot

      I'm great.  I've been sober for many years now.  Thanks for asking.  Pretty much a non-issue for me now.  I'm so sorry to hear about your sister, Brenda.  That breaks my heart.  I'll definitely read Maddison's poem.  I cannot imagine how hard that's been for all of you.  It's a nasty, nasty disease.

        unfortunately not much...... either fall asleep or get sick.... a couple of glasses of wine would be all i could manage, and that usually with a meal.  My kids think it is hilarious

      Yes, I think it is a nasty drug. Dr. Margolis in his famous drug guide had it right when he described it as a fifth rate depressant. smileI have always known I was lucky not to be able to handle much of it. Some people are genetically sitting ducks for the disease it can cause.
