Alcohol addiction is one of the most common drug choices. And many people don’t realize how dependent they are. One drink a night quickly turns to two. What was initially a means to relax and unwind soon becomes a crutch.
Alcoholism is not the behaviour of someone who is weak-willed. It’s a primary disease with both chemical (alcohol affects the brain differently from non-alcoholics) and biological factors (a tendency towards alcoholism can be genetically inherited).
The reality is alcohol addiction is the following experiences:
- Progressive (it gets worse over time)
- Chronic (it won’t go away by itself)
- Fatal (it can and will result in premature death)
