My husband is a recovering alcoholic, that is a very ugly accusation to make against a person who is working on their sobriety.
I took my last drink on January 19, 2009 and haven't looked back. But I can't say that hitting the sauce wouldn't sometimes be an awfully tempting way to get through ObaMao's presidency.
My hat is further off to Glenn Beck not only for taking and honoring the pledge, but for joining a t-totaling religion where he has an extra layer of protection.
It isn’t ugly at all. It’s a trained observation. I’ve served as counselor on alcohol wards in veteran’s hospitals and with military communities.
It is the FIRST place you’d want to go with a recovering alcoholic. It is absolutely essential not to deny reality about the recidivism of alcoholics. Alcohol is tough enough to beat without loved ones continuing to be enablers by pretending that problems are not extremely common or are some kind of attack.
