The poor man was such a habitual drinker that even he was finally convinced that he was an alcoholic . At his familys urging he went to see a psychiatrist. After a lengthy consultation, the doctor sternly ordered that hereafter, every time the patient got drunk he was to report his transgression the very next day.
A few days later the patient staggered into the psychiatrists office. I wanna report that I wash drunk last night, he mumbled.
For heavens sake, man, youre drunk right now! cried the doctor. Yeah I know, said the patient, but Im gonna report this tomorrow.
