If you think you are too smart, too rich, too well employed, too White, too Black, too young, too old, too scientific, too well respected, or too anything else to be an addict, you are slipping back into denial. Addiction does not respect race, creed, gender or anything else. It's a disease.
Stop questioning whether you qualify as an addict. Try drawing a picture of yourself after a long period of using, then try drawing a picture of yourself as a clean and sober person.
