One Member's Story

"Denial is the most cunning, baffling and powerful part of my disease, the disease of alcoholism. When I look back now, it's hard to imagine I didn't see a problem with my drinking. But instead of seeing the truth when all of the ‘yets’ (as in, that hasn't happened to me — yet) started happening, I just kept lowering my standards."
