Am I an Alcoholic?

There's a list I keep on my hard drive: "Things I've regretted doing while drunk." Every entry causes me to cringe; some make me cry. I've broken five iPhones. Irrevocably damaged two "best" friendships. The worst: One time, when I was 24, I woke up from a blackout naked and in an unfamiliar van. A man I didn't know was lying on top of me.
The therapist I began seeing after that incident started asking whether I had an alcohol problem. At the time I was stressing out at work, panicking as friends began settling down, and grieving the recent deaths of my mother and grandmother. But the therapist focused on my alcohol use.
"How much did you drink?" she asked.
"Three or four vodka sodas?" I shrugged. Whatever I'd had wasn't wildly out of sync with what everyone else was drinking.
"Three or four?" she asked. "You could buy a penthouse for that money!"
No, I could not. I rarely ever paid for my drinks. Alcohol was everywhere, from first dates to work-related open-bar events. In fact, the alcohol I had purchased was gathering dust on top of my fridge.
My therapist said she couldn't continue to see me unless I joined a 12-step program.
So I left therapy.

Students in Recovery on NPR

In murder mystery novels, when the hero, a private detective or homicide cop, drops by a late-night Alcoholics Anonymous meeting to stave off a sudden craving for a beer or two or 20, it's usually in some dingy church basement or dilapidated storefront on the seedier side of town. There's a pot of burnt coffee and a few stale doughnuts on a back table.
The Center for Students in Recovery at the University of Texas could not be more different.
In a bit of inspiration, UT located the center inside the luxurious athletic facilities attached to the university's football stadium. There are martial arts and dance studios; fencing, squash and steam rooms. It means the students in recovery are rubbing shoulders with UT's many student-athletes — another group with priorities besides partying. The scholarship athletes and the recovering addicts make for an interesting mix.
Twenty-three-year-old Lizette Smith, a member of the latter group, was born into a well-to-do family in a small town in Alabama. She was smart, popular, got good grades — even had a job. Her parents were largely absent, she says, busy with their own lives and their own demons. By 14, she was abusing Adderall, and as she grew older, she abused illegal drugs and alcohol.
