It's been 6 years since my graduation from Schick-Shadel Hospital. Still just the smell of any booze makes me ill. I remember the day I left schick. My aversion level was so sensitive beer commercials were unbearable! I don't go to AA, or any other type of "group". I just enjoy life without alcohol. YOU WILL SUCCEED. When you go in for treatment; embrace it. Don't B.S., treat it like a vacation, or expect a club-med setting. Go in there and do what you need to do. I guarentee you'll come out a different, better person.
