...what about the real alcoholic?

"He may start off as a moderate drinker; he may or may not become a continuous hard drinker; but at some stage of his drinking career he begins to lose all control of his liquor consumption, once he starts to drink...He is a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde...Why does he behave like this? If hundreds of experiences have shown him that one drink means another debacle with all its attendant suffering and humiliation, why is it he takes that one drink?...We cannot answer the riddle...once he takes any alcohol whatever into his system, something happens, both in the bodily and mental sense, which makes it virtually impossible for him to stop...The main problem of the alcoholic centers in his mind rather than his body."

-Alcoholics Anonymous, p.21-23
