Subject: RE: Alcoholism
If you decide to quit...remember - you didn't develop the problem overnight, so you won't solve the problem overnight either. Don't be discouraged. The first few months are the hardest. As you slowly undo the habit over time, it gets easier, but the spectre of addiction will always be with you. Learn to view its constant companionship as an opponent worthy of your heroic resolve. Wars are won through a series of small victories. Each day that you emerge a victorious warrior over your desire to drink strengthens your courage. Such noble endeavors as beating an addiction were never meant to be gained easily.
