The term “dry drunk” refers to a person who isn’t working a spiritual program but also not abusing any substances.

Beginning the steps is part of the program that must be followed or else there will not be any real promises. By doing the 12 steps people can begin to see with clarity.
Dropping expectations and resentments will benefit those lacking a healthy perspective of past life events with people, places, and things. When people who are living with the disease of addiction let others get into an untamed mind, it will almost always find reasons to self-destruct. When people decide they don’t want to deal with the madness going on inside the mind, alcohol and drugs begin to seem like a good idea. Having the courage to deal with the pain inside, is the transformation into a healthy mindset.
