Cigarettes and coffee: an alcoholic's best friend!
An alcoholic is someone you don't like who drinks as much as you do.
When a woman drinks it's as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. It's a slur on the divine in our nature.
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
Addiction should never be treated as a crime. It has to be treated as a health problem. We do not send alcoholics to jail in this country. Over 500,000 people are in our jails who are nonviolent drug users.
My admiration for the phenomenon of Alcoholics Anonymous is boundless.
It is the unbroken testimony of all history that alcoholic liquors have been used by the strongest, wisest, handsomest, and in every way best races of all times.
Like many alcoholics, I was a staggering woman in a chic apartment, sick and utterly disgusting.
My makeup wasn't smeared, I wasn't disheveled, I behaved politely, and I never finished off a bottle, so how could I be alcoholic?
Those years on the golf course as a caddie, boy, those people were something. They were vulgar, some were alcoholics, racist, they were very difficult people to deal with. A lot of them didn't have a sense of humor.
People are saying that I'm an alcoholic, and that's not true, because I only drink when I work, and I'm a workaholic.
Alcohol is a very patient drug. It will wait for the alcoholic to pick it up one more time.
There's sometimes a weird benefit to having an alcoholic, violent father. He really motivated me in that I never wanted to be anything like him.
Today, if you're not an alcoholic, you're nobody.
My mother was a professional sick person; she took a lot of pain pills. There are many people like that. It's just how they are used to getting attention. I always remember she's the daughter of alcoholics who'd leave her alone at Christmas time.
The Teen Challenge ministry was born out of those humble early days of ministry. It now includes over 500 drug and alcohol rehab centers around the world, even in Muslim countries. These include homes for girls and women addicts and alcoholics, all which are reaching many.
I am a raging alcoholic and a raging addict and I didnt want to see my kids do the same thing
No one will deny that the excessive use of alcohol and alcoholic beverages would do more than any other single factor to make impossible a total war effort.
I definitely think we should not serve alcoholic beverages at the lunch break.
Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
