P.S. From the Editor
Wondering whether it was an individual kink of my own or a trait common among alcoholics, I began asking some of my AA friends whether they felt we came in for a little more than our share of catching it in the neck. We do, my research reveals. Somebody always seems to be cussing us out. For this reason the saying "bless them that curse you," with its AA version about treating sick friends with understanding, has a special punch for alcoholics.
