I was talking to a woman once, and she told me that she could "see it" in Bush's eyes that he was a former alcoholic and that he had never gotten the proper treatment (in her mind, AA). She couldn't believe that someone could just get up one morning and decide to never drink again. I didn't know what to tell her.Alot of people are like that. That's why that program seems cultish. Everyone needs to do what works for them. Some people really need and alternative outlet to place thier dependency. Alcoholism isn't always about dependency. Often alcoholism is the symptom not the problem. She needs to understand that people like Bush have either solved thier problems, or learned to deal with them better.
