Honestly if a therapist can't clock an alcoholic, I'd be concerned. When I was a high functioning heroin addict, I fooled my therapist and psychiatrist for over a year. They had no clue even though I was very obviously a junkie lol

I haven't been back since going to rehab 6 years ago bc I'm still shocked at how fucking dumb both those men were

congrats, btw, on your sobriety. i was a high functioning opiates user for some time myself, many moons ago. it was tough to walk away, but i'm glad i did. and glad you did too.
