Black Out Drinking--What it is and What It Isn't

So, there's been a lot of conversation and media discussion about drinking this week: What is youthful drinking versus alcohol abuse versus alcoholism.

A question that comes up over and over is about drinking and memory loss--and from there to black out drinking.

Folks in recovery know what this is--even if our drinking experience never took us there, we know from listening to our comrades in the rooms that people can do all kinds of things in a black out and have some, little or no recall.

Today I read this great article explaining what black out drinking is--and what it isn't. I was surprised
to see that--after I posted Hepola's article on Facebook--how many people thought that a "black out" was the same as passing out or going to sleep. Not at all!

Thanks to The New York Times and to Sarah Hepola author of the powerful memoir, "Black Out".
