Semantic inaccuracy in re her alcoholism[edit]

The article states that she "was an alcoholic", however it is (afaik) universally accepted that since there is no cure for alcoholism "once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic". Therefore it would be better to say that she "is a successfully recovering alcoholic who has been sober for over XX years".

In fact she in her own words says "I know I'm an addict, and I know I'm an alcoholic" in this Reader's Digest interview which I believe makes a better reference than the Huffington Post article's more general content.

In any case, it is wonderful that she has made such a great recovery and become such a great actress, wife, mother, and activist. --98.172.21.130 (talk) 20:12, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

As an alcoholic in recovery and in AA we refer to ourselves as "alcoholics" or "recovering alcoholics". However, one would have to present this to Ms. Curtis, and to use her preference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dfmoberg (talkcontribs) 07:36, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Actually, it is not universally accepted that there is no cure because that would imply that the disease theory of alcoholism is itself universally accepted. I don't care about the semantic preference in this article I would just like to point out that using the term "universally xyz" should be done so carefully. While groups like AA and others may like to think that it is a disease and it is quite popular to say that it is, there is still controversy within the medical community. Remember: one negative in considering it a disease is that it diminishes personal responsibility. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.192.230.187 (talk) 03:24, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Baroness[edit]

As the wife of a baron, she is correctly referred to as 'Lady Haden-Guest', 'The Lady Haden-Guest', or 'The Rt Hon The Lady Haden-Guest'. (no first name is used). The place name 'of Saling, co. Essex' is not part of the title, it's just meant to clarify the place associated with the title. Not that I suspect she'd care, but Baroness, Lady Haden-Guest is redundant. Someone else — Preceding undated comment added 05:36, 5 October 2002‎ (UTC)

She is not a baroness, as the wives of English barons do not automatically become baronesses, unless they hold a barony in their own right. She does have the right to the courtesy title of "Lady", however. Mmyers1976 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 13:26, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
As an American citizen, she cannot hold a title. 50.166.192.110 (talk) 23:14, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Not so, see the discussion under "Name?", above. TJRC (talk) 23:32, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
