A friend of mine has a son who is an alcoholic. He went dry for 2 years, but started drinking again - just one at a function, and definitely feeling he was in control of how much he was drinking. It would help him cope better. It was not long before he needed to increase the amount he drank to maintain that feeling, and so it goes on, needing more and needing it more often.
I've put the bottle with the appealing sparkle away from the muddle - as this is what first attracts. However after a while it is blurred with the empty and the reduced impact bottles. I hope you follow my drift.
Thanks for looking
