While it is true that addictions affect the personality of the person who is addicted, this is NOT a personality disorder. Personality disorders are (in theory, anyway) lifetime patterns of specific sets of personality traits that tend to be fairly enduring. Narcisstic, Borderline, Antisocial, etc. Now whether or not all the personality disorders are really disorders of personality is up for debate as well. But my point is that personality disorders are not just when your personality is affected by some external factor (such as alchohol and drug use)

I'll put in a vote for a new forum too for substance abuse. I think that would be a great way for people to be able to encourage each other to gain and maintain sobriety.

It would be a wee tricky to leave out the spiritual aspects though, since so many people use AA, and their own concept of their higher power to achieve sobriety. So, that detail would have to be handled with by DocJohn and the moderators. That could get tricky here where we try to refrain from religious discussions.

downsolong,

Please accept my apology if I came across as not taking your request seriously. That certainly was not my intent. I really thought that my suggestion might give you a place to discuss your feelings until other arrangements could be made (which they have).

That being said, you can rest assured that I am not someone, now or ever, that goes out of their way to hurt anyone or make them uncomfortable. This was simply a misunderstanding.

I hope you have a pleasant evening.

Greg

bptoo- Sokay, I'm probably just being overly sensitive and defensive. This is quite a loaded topic for me. When that is added to some other issues so far unmentioned and perhaps unmentionable here, I'm a bit tender and hot headed I'm afraid. I hope to post on the new forum but still am unsure and afraid to. where's the alcohol/substance abuse forum? where's the alcohol/substance abuse forum?

dsl,

No worries. It's a tough topic for a lot of us. I find it hard to talk about a lot, but I always feel better after I do. When you feel up to posting there, I'm sure that you'll find a lot of people with things in common. Just take your time and do it when your ready. And again, I'm sorry if I was insensitive to your needs. I always try to be, but sometimes I just drop the ball.

I hope your day is a good one.

Greg
