If you can't see that, then you never will
I can, I am an alcoholic myself. I really don't care for that label, since it conjures up specific imagery and everyone is different with their habits, but I have issues surrounding alcohol more than the average person, partially due to genetics, as well as underlying generalized anxiety, for which I tend to self-medicate (I'm also cool and like to have fun). So believe me, I do get it. I just thought 'heart-breaking' went a little too far in regards to a complete stranger that is fortunate enough to be extremely wealthy and have a dream job. Furthermore, if Bruce had the honesty to admit that his abstinence was no longer intact, then maybe his description of how he just occasionally has wine with food is accurate. People can change, with age an maturity for one thing, as well as lifestyle, family commitments etc. So until we see a mugshot of Bruce Willis after he got pulled over with a BAC of .24, I don;t think its necessary to have a broken heart.
