(If your vice is not alcohol then replace the word alcohol with whatever it is your testing.)
"We do not like to pronounce any individual as alcoholic, but you can quickly diagnose yourself.... try some controlled drinking. Try to drink and stop abruptly. Try it more than once. It will not take long for you to decide if your are honest with yourself about it."
"If when you honestly want to, you find you cannot quit entirely, or if when drinking, you have little control over the amount you take, you are probably alcoholic".
Big Book pg. 31 , 34
If I'm enjoying the alcohol, I cannot control my drinking. If I am controlling my drinking, I definitely am not enjoying it. I can't control and enjoy, or enjoy and control.
