ME AN ALCOHOLIC?

After talking with him for a time, I heard myself saying, “Doc, I think I’m an alcoholic.” “Yes,” he said, surprisingly, “you are.” “Then why in God’s name haven’t you told me so during all these years?” “Two reasons,” he said. “First, I couldn’t be sure. The line between a heavy drinker and an alcoholic is not always clear. It wasn’t until just lately that, in your case, I could draw it. Second, you wouldn’t have believed me even if I had told you.” – Alcohol’s wringer squeezed this author–but he escaped quite whole. p. 385
