A Conversation Between an Active Alcoholic & a Sober Alcoholic

If I am an alcoholic then I must be weak.

If you are an alcoholic then you have a disease.

I will not be able to cope.

You will be given coping skills.

I will lose all of my friends.

With friends like that who needs enemies.

I will lose my passion.

You will realize how monochromatic your life has been.

I will be boring.

You will be vibrant.

It’s impossible to never drink again.

You will not drink again one day at a time.

I will lose my best friend.

You will lose your worst enemy.

I will be dishonored.

You will be envied and respected.

I will be worthless.

You will be a hero.
