Yes, I can not handle sobriety so I take it out on people. Especially when they can not say anything back to me. I am also too stupid to stop and just take my loss and go on with my life.

I'm familiar with alcoholism. I'm a recovered alcoholic. Been sober 41 years now. Recovered means that I don't have the cravings and desires for alcohol anymore. I'll always be an alcoholic. I only drank a few years, but I was blacked out pretty much the whole time.

I know a few dry drunks. I know the world a dry drunk lives in. I was one for a long time. But I got help. I'm doing good now.

Thanks Revelations. Most people on the "outside" don't understand alcoholism and the control it has on a person. It amazes me how some people can drink, get drunk, go home and have no problem other than a hang over, and then some get addicted to it after that very first drink. That's what happened to me. I had my first drink on my 12th birthday. Last drink on the day after my 15th birthday.
