If you go back and read his threads, he drank from his teens until his 60s (now).
It's not a quick process in all cases, I doubt there are many ah ha moments with addiction that are instantaneous. It would be GREAT if there were.
I think the point of the messages here are, what we want and what we can have are sometimes two different things. I might want to live in a mansion but what I can have is a modest house. Now, I can choose to take on a second job and save for that mansion or I can be content with my house. Either one of those is viable and are within my control.
If there was no second job available, I need to be content where I am. Alternately I could beat my head against my modest house wall and be discontented.
Those are your choices and what I see being said here. He is ok, you are not, you can accept that which you can't control or you can keep hitting it (verbally), won't make any difference except to cause you a lot of anger and resentment.
