You notice what I drink, and not the thirst I feel.

The Doctor’s opinion is that we have a physical allergy to alcohol:

“We believe, and so suggested a few years ago, that the action of alcohol on these chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy; that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class and never occurs in the average temperate drinker. These allergic types can never safely use alcohol in any form at all; and once having formed the habit and found they cannot break it, once having lost their self-confidence, their reliance upon things human, their problems pile up on them and become astonishingly difficult to solve.”

The definition for the word “allergy” is, “Excess sensitiveness to certain substances which are harmless to most persons.”
