Are you a gambling man?

One might gamble on being able to find a way to drink moderately or stay sober on the mere knowledge one should … the cost is the risk that this might seal one’s downfall, because the alcoholic process, once re-triggered, can be unstoppable (cf. pages 32–33).

One might gamble, instead, on AA, to stay sober … the cost is the time and effort expended in vain, since one would have stayed sober anyway.

What is your gamble going to be?
