Alcohol and Drug Addiction Symptoms

Thanks - I think that it is difficult for 'others' to understand that some of us 'did not see the light. We had to feel the heat.'
But the American Medical Association does understand that we have an illness, just like any other illness and to judge us based on "how could we do that to ourselves?" is harsh and I find myself resenting those that do not understand just how insidious the disease of Alcoholicm and Addiction can be and I just want to start spouting off .......
THEN - I stop, take a deep breath, express gratitude to my chosen Higher Power and I try to remember that Bill W. said:
Some day we hope that Alcoholics Anonymous will help the public to a better realization of the gravity of the alcoholic problem, but we shall be of little use if our attitude is one of bitterness or hostility.

I never could understand how people could let something like alcohol or other drugs take away their loved ones and ruin their own lives...Until I met my own demon that did the same thing.
You hear people use the phrase, "Live one day at a time" a thousand times if you've heard it once. Such a small, generic phrase. Also a phrase that has more meaning and power to those who have to use it.

personally, i think they do fall under that category. they can be done safely, but they require liver support, pct, ect. so my thinking is they are hard on the body while doing them, that is why they fall under that category. i drank and did cocaine for quite a while, and i survived and am heathier now then ever, and i can guarantee it's not from the coke. thats just my two cents.
