    Not everyone, but all who have been there whether they make the meetings or not.
    I have have a lot of friends on that side of the fence. I was a non drinking alchy.

    I didn't drink much, but when I did I either drank two and quit, or I drank gallons and stayed out of everything for a while for a while till I woke up somewhere and closed MY bar.

    What SCARED THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF ME was one time I woke up went about my usual regrouping and as everyone who loses time like that does and I got some Deja Vu and thought I had done something.

    It was like a real life dream in my head all of a sudden.

    I went to the places in was my head and checked it all out and it was just a weird dream.

    One of my friends that was good to party but never got bad like that said hell we were not anywhere around the place I said we were going to look.

    The days after when you get something like that can be HELL on your party sense.
    It made me aware that I could have done anything while I was absent.

    I don't drink much anymore, but when I do I stay sober and leave the highball glass at home unless there is someone doing the leading and driving.
    THERE can be only ONE!

    Don't know if this will help, think of the wretched nauseous feeling that you have when you get up in the morning. Also the other problems in your life which are smoothed over when you drink are still there after. I am not knocking AA but it didn't work for me. I am still trying to quit cigarettes. For me it's much harder. Good luck and God Bless.

    I thought that AA teaches "one day at a time".

    Your sponsor could facilitate this mindset by asking, "have you been sober today?"

    If you're like me, there is always an "out".

    I think it was after I got a drunk in public and was going to AA, a relative asked me to promise that I wouldn't drink that day.

    I did.

    Then I proceeded to drive to a fish restaurant that sold beer.

    I bought lunch and drank a beer with my meal.

    See? I didn't "drink". I had a beer while eating!

    The Russians can dissemble even better.

    They call drinking beer "eating bread".

    Drinking means vodka.
