If you are out to dinner and are offered a glass of wine you’ll most likely be questioned if you turn it down. We’ve been taught to believe that wine is good for us and drinking is essential to having a good time in social situations so how could you possibly turn down the drink,
I’ve been sober almost four and a half years. I don’t call myself alcoholic but for lack of a better word I used the term alcoholic in the title. I could say that I have “Alcohol Use Disorder” or AUD but those labels are both clinical and clumsy. I don’t identify as an addict either.
