Probably not. If you were physically and psychologically addicted to alcohol, you STILL have this medical disease; it's simply gone into remission. If you try to drink moderately, you will probably fail and end up just where you were before you stopped drinking. However, some addiction experts disagree with this viewpoint. Moderation Management is a recovery program for those who have abused alcohol, but were not addicted to it. Rational Recovery also has this viewpoint.

The choice is yours.
