200. Oh, the dry drunk is quite real
I've experienced it in all its technicolor glory. It's not a 'sinister mind-trap,' but a term which describes someone who continues to relate to others in the way that they did when they were using. Relying on maladaptive behaviors like self-pity, stage-managing others' lives, and oneupmanship creates emotional distress and tempts one to use again. That's all.
