If instead they had learned to practice moderation and that it is indeed their fault for drinking too much and that even when drinking they still need to learn to control their behavior. They'd be better off.
Lol, you have no idea what you are talking about...
Asking an alcoholic to drink in moderation is like asking a sex addict to fck without cumming...it doesn't work like that.
Most alcoholics don't play the victim card either...they very much feel at fault. These meetings have more success with drinkers than ANYTHING ELSE...it has been shown...so whatever it is they are doing, they are doing it right.
