Louis Theroux - Drinking to Oblivion

I haven't posted on this site for a long time but I was watching this last night and it made think of everyone on this site whose stories I used to follow and from whose strength and wisdom I used to gain.
BBC iPlayer - Louis Theroux - Drinking to Oblivion
It's been a while since a documentary which shows the reality of alcoholism has come out and I always think that programmes like this help those of us who may feel complacent in long term sobriety to remember what we're up against.

Began watching it, will finish later. Quite depressing actually, but I will still watch it. Educate myself.

The stories are sad but are a reminder of how serious we need to take our recovery.

I enjoy Louis' shows in general! There was one point centred around the young bloke conatantly relapsing in this one where I said out loud to myself, 'i am never, NEVER going to drink again' without even meaning to.
