And alcoholism isn't just a compulsion you flid

(, Fri 19 May 2017, 17:29, archived)
Starts off as one
takes a very long time to become an alcoholic, biologically, but the compulsion is what gets people into it.

The alcoholics I've known have taken a long route to being addicted. Those I know who have recovered have completely kicked it. I quit smoking. I don't smoke at all. Nothing. I know if I had a puff I'd be back on it. I can't.

But I know people who are obese. They can't stop eating food. Some are dying to lose weight but they can't stop themselves, and the behaviour I see in them is the same as alcoholics or drug addicts.

You're not the first person to say that
but by saying no offence you sugar-coated it beautifully and protected my feelings.
