What's the use anyhow?

"Well, I'll stop with the sixth drink." Or "What's the use anyhow?"

When this sort of thinking is fully established in an individual with alcoholic tendencies, he has probably placed himself beyond human aid, and unless locked up, may die or go permanently insane.

Good point Dallas.

A very frightening place for an alcoholic to get to. That place "Whats the use" is just round the corner from "F*** it all" near where John Barleycorn lives.

Even when the world seems to be falling in on you, there is always a use to being sober. If you are sober, you might see god's way out of the mess. If you are drunk all you see is mess.
