I believe that an alcoholic is sometimes mistaken for a narcissist or sociopath.
An alcoholic person does exhibit some antisocial traits, of course, but it can be confusing to differentiate the two.
This information may help those of you who often ask me about this topic.
Alcoholism is a disease that can be treated — not cured — with abstinence.
Sociopathy cannot be cured. Since it is a personality disorder, it will remain present
even when one takes alcohol out of the equation.
I do believe that a sober sociopath is better than an active alcoholic sociopath.
And, a sober sociopath who finds spirituality is even better.
But, what are the odds? ONE IN A BILLION? Maybe.
