They wonder why they drink so much. I did not know. I had to keep it a secret because I did not understand what was going on. Some great lines from Alcoholics Anonymous made me realize. I thought I was on my own, then I read a passage that said drinkers thought they were trying to escape. , but really what they were trying to do was overcome a disease they didn’t know they had. I thought to myself, “oh there are 30 million people who think like me”
