drunkalog
 n.— «During my stay in rehab at Castle Medical Center, we had to attend AA or Narcotics Anonymous meetings every day. One of the regular weekly meetings was held at Castle. That’s where I first got to hear Kevin “share.” Others refer to it as “running their story,” while longer accounts of drinking histories are called “drunkalogs.”» —“A hero’s material success leads to a tragic fall” by Rich Figel Star Bulletin (Honolulu, Hawaii) Jan. 27, 2008.
