More on "early stage

May I add my plea to that of M.A.E. (in the November Grapevine) for more literature for the "early stage" alcoholic? It becomes a little too easy to rationalize the fact that we never had a morning drink (or a complete blackout or some of the more devastating possible results of our drinking) into a doubt that we are really alcoholic. Those of us who are alone overseas don't have the advantage of a sponsor to help keep our thinking sober and so depend largely on what we can find to read as a substitute for meetings.
