How is an alcoholic defined?
Of course, it is someone with an addiction to alcohol.
But I like the definition that Anne Lamott pointed out.
“Someone who you don’t like that drinks as much as you.”
Just know that if you are at a loss without something, you might be staring in the face of an addiction and not even realize it yet.
If you are going to be obsessive about something, try an addiction to a healthy activity.
- A walking routine
- Time with family
I knew by the time I was twenty that I was an alcoholic, even though I was not quite sure what that meant: Dylan Thomas said an alcoholic was someone you don’t like who drinks as much as you do.
