Alcohol is a drug. There is no cure. If you are an alcoholic, you will always be an alcoholic. If you pick up a drink, you will pick up where you would be if you had never stopped.

> I thought that in AA, NA, etc. they consider you to be still addicted even if you're completely abstinent (once an addict, always an addict, that kind of thing)? (I'm not saying I agree with this attitude, mind you!)
