I'd say it's fine to try to resist all (or almost all) of the time as long as you roleplay it in a meaningful way. Particularly with things like alcoholism. I mean if you write-up the lead character of Elementary you have to give to give a disad representing his substance abuse problem because it does represent a big part of his character, but the fact is he does try to resist it almost all the time with a high resistance value. It's just that he ends up going to "meetings" after making his resistance roll.
