Heck yea, for many years I would swear off in the morning, go to work and find myself backing out of the 7-11 parking place popping a top!!!! The last years I would swear off at night & find myself in the garage loading up 8 in my soft cooler to make sure I had enough for the ride home.

The last 5 years I drank when I did not want to drink, the last 2 years I either got really drunk on 6 or I could drink one after the other all day and not even get a buzz......... I had to drink to feel normal!

The only thing that broke that cycle I had no control over was finding a Power greater then myself and giving my need to drink over to him. I did that with the 12 steps, the obsession was lifted, I no longer find a beer magically in my hand.
