Alcoholism is a devastating, potentially fatal disease. The primary symptom of having it is telling everyone--including yourself--that you are not an alcoholic.
HERBERT L. GRAVITZ & JULIE D. BOWDEN, Recovery: A Guide for Adult Children of Alcoholics

The idea that somehow, someday he will control and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker. The persistence of this illusion is astonishing. Many pursue it into the gates of insanity or death.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, The Big Book

The contrast which exists between the abstemious man and the drunkard is this--the former governs his affairs, but the affairs of the latter govern him.
WILLIAM SCOTT DOWNEY, Proverbs

A drunkard is like a whiskey-bottle, all neck and belly and no head.
AUSTIN O'MALLEY, Keystones of Thought

No life is so hard that you can't make it easier by the way you take it. -Ellen Glasgow

Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left. - Hubert Humphrey

Pain is inevitable, but misery is an option.

When you see trouble coming, cross the street.

Stop trying to think your way out of a burning building. If your house is on fire, just get out! Worry about the "why" afterwards (from an old Alanon sponsor, pointing out how I overthink things a lot)

Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you.

I got along without you before I met you and I'll get along without you a long time after you're gone

When someone shows you who they are, belive them
