  1. Well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion, but that doesn’t make you correct.
    Alcoholism was accepted as a disease by the American Medical Association in 1956, and by the American Psychological Association a couple of years later. With all due respect, I value their opinions (and, for that matter, my own) a good deal more than yours.

    I’m sorry if AA didn’t work for you, but that too, in my opinion as someone who has worked with alcoholics for twenty years, is more often due to unwillingness of the individual than any flaws in the program.
