Yes I realise now that hearing of other peoples struggles with drink does not a jot of good for me. It didn't stop me drinking, and half the time gave me an excuse to go out and drink more. I think the BEAST was listening intently. IT picked up a lot of tips, from meetings, like ingenious places to hide the stuff, places I would never have thought of. IT got me to downplay warnings from the doctor, cos there were always people who had much worse things wrong with them, and they got better once they stopped drinking. And the av always promised that "one day" we were going to give up drinking, so it didn't matter what damage my body took in the meantime.
Being around poeple who look agast at how much I could drink, is much healthier for ME than people who would say "I drank twice as much as that, at least" my BEAST loved those people!
Your description of your freedom, is wonderful
