Personal observation and experience.
It is not a bad thing. Even tobacco addicts often employ 'substitution methodologies" to quit smoking.
While some use the "one addiction for another" as an insult, I do not.
Imagine if one could substitute heroin addiction with caffeine addiction. Would that be so bad ?
But, because the most common "treatment" for alcoholism and drug addiction is "spiritual" group therapy it has become a target here.
Would they rather be married to an abusive drunkard or a harmless "Jesus freak" ?
I'll take the latter.
.. recovery is probably possible because of the blend of many factors including group therapy and a self-improvement program. My hat is off to people like Grace and yourself who have made it ..
.. when does treatment for your medical condition start ??..
