Alcohol and Alcoholism.
Drinking and Public Display.
Alcoholism is one of this world most serious health problems.
More than half of each country citizen who chronically and compulsively drink to excess are often need of nursing care. Uncontrolled drinking commonly leads to physical injury and disturbed behavior, and in most cases many of Alcoholics are responsible for taking many innocent lifes due to drinking and driving.
However, many alcoholics suffer from liver disease and other late medical complications of the prolonged intake of large amounts of alcohol... Women have become top of the list, in recent years, as alcoholics,.
The social cost of alcoholism is counted not only in terms of health of the drinker himself but in the harm done to others. As a Nurse, in my everyday life, I have seen the result of what alcoholism can do to a person and his or her families, in death and injuries, caused by drunken drivers. More than half of the over 100,00 highways deaths, around the world involved alcoholics or other drinking problems.
Drinking is now known to exist at every level of society, It has also recently become increasingly clear that there are probably more liquor stores, than health food stores, here in the United States of America, and around the world.
Women with drinking problems do not even hide it anymore, , but consequences of a mother's alcoholism may be even more devastating than men, women get knock up more often, due to the fact that she doesn't remember, anything after a night out on the town, and because of the alcoholism she end up pregnant.
A big problem for the rest of her family. Alcohol and the Kidney's

Recovery from alcohol addiction requires long term treatment, No single form of alcoholism therapy is effective for all those involved, however, These psychotherapy, membership in organizationtion such as Alcoholics anonymous, (AA) and the use of certain drugs that help to deter the individual from drinking seldom help the alcoholics.
However, some Behavior therapy, might apply by learning techiques to change human behavior by therapists. by according to the experts, only in some cases, virtually reality exposure can used to present fear to stimuli in controlled manner.. once again the answer lies within the alcoholics person,
if they want to quit.
