On vacation last week, I was sipping Presidente beers and gulping down Leslie Jamison's fine book The Recovering.
I do love a good book on alcoholism! Reading this one, which is about writers and alcoholism (OMG), I realized why I drink every single day of my life, even when I am sick:
It's to prevent ever being in a situation where I crave booze in the desperate way that an alcoholic does.
Because then I would have to stop drinking.
Which would be just terrible.
