Is there any difference between an alcoholic or an addict?
The first AA meeting I went to or I should say, dragged, kicking and screaming and high as a kite, to; I made a big AA NO NO. When the group of mostly farmers from the hills of Weaverville NC got around to me and my introduction, I slipped up. I stated, 'my name is Ruth and I'm cross addicted!'
I never went back to that meeting. You would have thought those farmers considered me an undercover agent for the Stop Smoking campaign.
I went on to become more angry/disillusioned. Drunk and high 90% of the time. Yet, even today, in AA meetings around the world; addicts & alcoholics don't mix.
Well I don't know about being an addict because I never used drugs , but as far as drinking alcohol and being an alcoholic, I am.
Sober now for 2 1/2 years and going strong But I will always be classified as an alcoholic. Its a name I earned I guess for all those years of drinking.
Difference between and alcoholic and addict? Both will kill you in the end !
We're all the same. We both introduce toxic substances into our bodies that will possibly result in losing everything we love
