Bravo H.C Porter.
FYI Acording to the American Medical Association, I think it revised in the 1980s, the definition of alcoholism 1 it is inherited. My dad and aunt were boozers and both dad and moms parents were as well.
2 It is a disease just like cancer
3 there is no cure.
For me I eat a lot of green vegetables like kale,spinach and bok choy. It has helped tremendously. BUT, I know with me there is no such thing as a social drink. Okay maybe you can go out and have one or two with friends today and not get drunk.Next week however you can have one drink and end up on a two or three day bend.
As well I was a volunteer in a soup kitchen and speak from experiance when I say with in three months of getting out of detox the addicts were right back at it again
.A sobering up drunk told me something I pray I will never forget. Don't forget, we're all one step from the gutter.
One addiction therapist shared with how some of his long term patients were sober for over twenty years, then they just nose dived right back in the bottle.
One of the founders of AAA was found dead in a back alley. He died of his own vomit after falling off the wagon and getting severly drunk. He passed out and died in his own vomit.
My saving grace is being a Christian and knowing that when I repent Jesus will forgive me and He ALWAYS loves me
