Letter to Oscar De La Hoya

Dear Oscar,

I’m sorry to learn you’re back in rehab but glad you went.  Most alcoholics never submit to inpatient treatment.  I never did but should have during three decades of excess.  I’ve read enough about you to conclude you probably didn’t drink and use daily.  Neither did I, and that’s how I so long justified it: I only do it on weekends.  Right, people said, you’re wacked out two days and then need two more to recover.

Now I’m approaching sixteen years of sobriety, a feat no one imagined, so I’d like to offer some things I learned.  Alcoholics are usually nervous people and often depressed.  If the latter is true, daily prayers to a higher power will not be enough to sustain sobriety.  I’m not suggesting you run and get a psychiatrist, if you haven’t already, but I am guaranteeing that a large slice of alcoholics are undermined by brains that are naturally hyper and anxious, and people in pain will seek medication.  Look at history.  Glance around your AA meetings: how many people have ten or more years sobriety, and how many have less than thirty days?  Those answers won’t be encouraging.  At least you have a better chance than poor alcoholics, who likely won’t have the opportunity to undergo rehab or consult experts in psychopharmacology.
