My Experience with Alcohol, a 17th-Century Mathematician, and a Personal Decision
Eaton, Dennis R.; Rector, Sheila M.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v4 n1 p74-80 2009
This writing shares the first author's personal experience with alcohol, the negative consequences of his choices, and the ultimate answering of the question, "Am I an alcoholic and should I drink again?" The decision-making process and the eventual answer come from Blaise Pascal, a 17th-century mathematician. This process is explained and proposed as a model for practitioners and educators. (Contains 2 figures.)
