Assuming the withdrawals aren't punitive, I don't think they will matter much.

But you should consult with an attorney in the state you want to practice regarding character and fitness for the bar. I know the Texas bar is extremely picky about substance abuse.

while alcoholism is a disease, and a horrible one at that, it is also a concern in the industry, and at law schools. Be careful with how you phrase it, as law schools are quick to point out that the legal profession has a higher rate of addiction than others.

If you can find something else to talk about, that is a more positive story overall, i would emphasize that.
