    A good article, I think, about the disease of alcoholism.


    Have known many alcoholics, some personally, and some from Viet Nam war, when I worked in detox and rehab.



    Understanding the Insanity of Alcoholism: How the Alcoholic Thinks

    Friends and family of active alcoholics ask me to explain how the alcoholic thinks. I am happy to share what I have learned after we establish what their motives are.



    Master Manipulators
    Alcoholics are master manipulators. They may not have been con artists before they started drinking but they come to have remarkable skills. They are the folks who can sell ice to Eskimos. They will pick a fight with you because they want to leave and they will have you believing it’s your fault. They show little or no accountability. They may have had integrity before their addiction kicked in but it will be conspicuously absent from their lives as they spiral. There is often one exception to this rule for each alcoholic – one thing they do especially well and it will most generally be their sole source of self esteem. We have known a large number of alcoholics who have incredible work ethics because being a good worker is the one thing they know they’re good at…well, they will say that and drinking.

    Addicts have a common set of mental skills. These happen to overlap narcissist skills as well.
