One of my closest personal friends was in recovery for alcohol, we talked a lot and it gave me a ton if insight. I witnessed his lows, and his highs but the one thing that really stuck with me was that he said there was never a cure from alcoholism. Some people manage it, others don't but the one truth here is that you have to realize that you are the problem and you have to want to get better. Even people that manage it over a long period of time can have brief periods of denial, anything in their life can set that process in motion. It's really tough to watch and makes you feel very helpless as that person's friend.
