Hi Sue,

If you have problems related to your drinking, then that list may be the reasons you gave yourself to pick up a drink. But it's not why you kept drinking after the problems began...

There is only one thing that explains continued use despite serious negative consequences - that one thing is addiction.

Glad you are here!
