What type of drinker were you? In looking back at my drinking history I think I totally skipped the social drinking phase. When I drank it was always to excess and was always punctuated by periods of sobriety.
The fact that I could quit for periods of time that varied from weeks, months, to the better part of a year led me to believe that I didn’t have a major problem. After each binge the resolve to stop was always the same, I said the words “Never Again” so many times over the years that I lost count.
The other variety of alcoholic, the steady drinker abuses alcohol on a more regular basis. I have known many people who fit into this catagory. I’m not really sure which type is worse, any opinions?
