True - so many go under "orders" from family, friends, jobs - but they aren't ready. I didn't forget what I learned in my time - but, I did drink again after. It took a few more experiences before I finally and fully surrendered. The one benefit: I had proven I could go 30 days without alcohol. After I eventually got some clarity, the things I learned came back to me - so, it can be a benefit in that way, too.
