    The Line

    This was a good question from the Recovery Forums intro thread. Thought it deserved a thread of its own.

    Re: The Line

    Whoops, should have had a look at this thread before I replied in the other

    ....

    Put simply, when the drink/drug takes control. When one no longer has a choice as to whether they'll pick up that drink or that drug (and not everyone realizes that they don't have a choice).

    The words "habit" and "regularly" are already alarming though, because before dependence comes abuse, which may or may not lead to one becoming an alcoholic, depending on whether something is done, or happens, to stop the cycle. In addition, not everyone who drinks is or will become an alcoholic. It's a physical/mental disease that one has, and is more generalized than just the act of using a substance. I'd be happy to go into details re: diagnostic criteria etc, but fear I'd be boring the heck outta you guys

    Which post? What is there about it that makes you ask?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
