What do you think of functioning alcoholics?
Like people with advanced degrees from competitive schools with great jobs who still can’t go a day without getting trashed

I used to work with a guy who would have a 40 OZ beer hidden at his desk every day and whenever my boss wasn't around would take a swig. He was great at his job so I never said anything. Eventually, he couldn't do his job anymore and my boss had to let him go

I don't think that is the definition of a functioning alcoholic, unless you mean they get trashed at home in private. So what do I think about that? They are deceiving themselves and everyone else. It is dangerous and sad.

Well, that describes one of my grandfathers. He never missed a day's work. His heart was in the right place, but he still ruined my mother's life, because he did not take care of her.
Also, there was a coworker who came to work stinking every day. One day, he didn't come in for several days, because he was dead. Barely 50 years old, what a waste, how sad.
