“A man who drinks too much on occasion is still the same man as he was sober. An alcoholic, a real alcoholic, is not the same man at all. You can't predict anything about him for sure except that he will be someone you never met before.” 

Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye

Alcoholism is a devastating, potentially fatal disease. The primary symptom of having it is telling everyone--including yourself--that you are not an alcoholic.” 

Herbert L. Gravitz & Julie D. Bowden, Recovery: A Guide for Adult Children of Alcoholics

Because alcohol is encouraged by our culture, we get the idea that it isn't dangerous. However, alcohol is the most potent and most toxic of the legal psychoactive drugs.” 

Beverly A. Potter & Sebastian Orfali, Brain Boosters

The first step toward recovery from alcoholism is the recognition that a problem exists. Once the problem drinker breaks through denial and admits to having a problem, a range of treatment options become available.” 

Jeffrey S. Nevid, Health in the New Millennium

Most recovering alcoholics in early sobriety have trouble believing they'll ever have fun again but if they hang in there, it's amazing how good life can become.” 

Elizabeth Zelvin, interview, The Fix
