nurse,

oh, what a moment you've experienced.

i understand the analogy, of course. and while i do think there are similarites, the difference is that while the booze will also give those awful symptoms, the payoff is what happens inside before he feels rotten, and his health begins to fail.

and then there's the good ol' stigma.

i have always liked the diabetes comparison; they are quite similar.

i'm sorry you're hurting, but glad you had your clarity. it is what moves us forward.
