It amazes me how high functioing alcoholics think there life is going swimmingly well. I realise it’s part of the addiction/disease/illness. They think they are fine. I am having a blast, look I can take a picture next to a rocky mountain in america. I can travel.I have my drinking buddies, I am the life and soul of the party. No girfriend to hold me back, I have a job, I am renting a flat off my dad. I am doing amazing.
yeh….. but the reality is your an Addict, you isolate yourself from your family most of the time, you lie, you hide and deny things. Your relationship has fallen apart, you actually don’t own a property and you work in one of the worst areas in South Wales. You spend hundreds every year on liquids so that you can be buried in a few years. You crave alcohol, your aggressive, your fat and your health is in the worst condition ever. You look like someone who has injected alcohol in every oriface of your body, you don’t speak to family members, you pissed off most of your old friends, you look like your in a gay relationship with a would be Johnny depp and your other best friend is a bottle of beer. You hang out with heavy drinkers, your family is riddled with heavy drinkers, you have no real job career prospects other than to continue drinking your liver away…
