The Difference

The heavy drinker had suffered many of the same horrible and tragic consequences as his alcoholic friend. Both had stopped drinking for a period of time when the heavy drinker decided to have a drink.

“Our lives are finally on track, won’t you have a drink with me to celebrate?” The heavy drinker produced a bottle and poured out 2 overflowing shots.

The alcoholic smiled, “If I wasn’t alcoholic I would drink with you everyday.” He politely refused and continued on his path of recovery.

***For the heavy drinker, a break from alcohol may be all that’s needed to get back on track. For the alcoholic, to drink is to die…
