Let me also cover my ass by saying that, yes, there *are* those few lucky bastards who can overcome their addiction and go back to drinking or smoking pot on a purely social level. My dad is one of those people. He used to get pretty drunk when I was a kid...fired from jobs, etc. Now he can have a drink and its no big deal...sometimes he'll get a glass of wine or scotch AND NOT EVEN FINISH IT!!!! I am jealose of people like this because, right now, I would like JUST ONE BEER to fill the emptiness inside of me...but I know I'd just end up drinking a case and puking....
