Sorry about that. Actually....no I'm not. I thought it was damn funny. I actually considered writing, "Um....NO! Ok, see y'all again tomorrow!) [snort of laughter]
But I figured that someone might want more explanation than that....
See how nice I am?
So, back to the post.

Welcome to Q&A Wednesday, where you ask a question and I give you my admittedly unscientific opinion on what the answer is.
Today's question comes to us from New York City. T asks: "Are you an addict forever or can you be cured?"
As I said in my earlier post.... No. You can't be cured.
Wait, wait, wait. Sheesh!
|Hate to break it to you....But there is no magic pill...|
There are plenty of people who claim that there are cures for addiction or alcoholism or that they've been cured. I don't believe it, but if they do, that's great. More power to them.
Personally, I don't believe that there is a cure. I think that once you're an addict, you're an addict until the day you die.
It may be a little hard to follow the logic, so you'll have to pay attention.
The addiction is the -ism.
As I've said before, I don't think that the using, whether it be drugs, alcohol, food, sex, what have you is the actual problem. Those things are not the -ism. They're merely a symptom of the -ism.
So, just because you stop using doesn't fix the -ism. It doesn't make you not an addict. It just makes you an addict that doesn't use anymore.
So, can addiction be "cured"? No. It can be managed and controlled. You can have a daily reprieve from your addiction, but it will always be there, lurking under the surface, waiting for the day you're not vigilant. The days do get easier, but the danger is always there. Forever.
