About Alcoholism - Alcoholism Information, Research and Treatment

The Great Remover

An AA friend of mine says he read a newspaper story that alcohol will remove stains from clothing. This is quite correct, he says, and just goes to prove the amazing versatility of alcohol. It will also remove winter clothes, spring clothes and autumn clothes from a man, his wife and children if used in sufficient quantity. Alcohol will remove furniture from the home, rugs from the floor, food from the table, lining from the stomach, vision from the eyes and judgment from the mind. Alcohol will also remove reputations, good jobs, good friends, happiness from children's hearts, sanity, freedom, man's ability to adjust and live with his fellowmen and even life itself.

As a remover of things alcohol has no equal.
