Alcoholism

Updated on April 15, 2011

Alcohol problem varies in so many ways and it starts from a very mild scale of abuse to life threatening which makes an individual dependent of alcohol.

You see,this is not just about drinking beer or taking a glass of scotch,whiskey or brandy,it is not the in take of gin or rum so what is this really all about?

ALCOHOLISM:

This is a disorder in humans where the dependence on alcohol is uncontrolled therefore making one an addict to any form of alcoholic product and multiplies the urge which makes it compulsory for one to always drink an overdoes of alcoholic products.

Some alcoholics are addicted to beer while some are addicted to hot drink but whatever be the case an alcoholic is an alcoholic no matter what type of alcoholic products he or she is addicted to.


 

I started taking alcohol beverages at the age of 13, then it was all about a boy trying to be like Daddy,though i normally hid while drinking but it later became a daily hubby and by the age of 15,i was consuming two to three bottles of beer a day.

No one knew about this hubby of mine except a cousin of mine who was of the same age and was eager to explore the Daddies world with me and the fact that his father owed a grocery shop made it easier for us to always reach our brand.

Star Lager

One thing about Star is that it had a unique taste which makes you want to drink more and more and more until you can drink no more.

By the age of 21,that is approximately 9years of my first buzz,it became obvious that i was suffering from a chronic illness known as CNS.

There was no way i could do without alcohol but the funny thing was that i hid this hubby for years and it never affected my grades nor school performance though i was always drunk yet the teachers were unable to notice my sober moments.

I knew that things were getting out of hand when it became obvious that alcohol had taken its turn on me,so many questions began hitting me on a daily basis and sometimes i call on someone and simply ask the person the questions lingering in me just for an answer to help myself.

Are you an Alcoholic?

Anyway, things went out of control and my habit began affecting my life,my work and my family but this was something i got into unintentionally because i was just a kid trying to play a daddy so i wanted help and needed someone to pull me out of this pit which i mistakenly led myself into.

Tips on how to help your alcohol addiction

The first and most important thing is for you to accept first and foremost that you have a problem just like my cousin Judith who also became an addict just like me.

Though people are always refereed to rehabs and counseling but the greatest remedy to alcoholism is WILL POWER.

Your willingness to help yourself and cut your alcohol dependency is the basic need because no matter how hard people try to help an alcoholic,once you are hiding beneath the rock,it will take a greater force and your own determination to quench the desire and urge for consumption.

Anyone can change once you seek for a change so if you are an alcoholic or you have a problem with alcohol and simply answer the seven questions in picture three then decided on what to do because it is never too late.

This story/article has no link or whatsoever to the author(Rossimobis) or to anyone dead or alive rather it is one vital problem facing mankind which the author singled out and casted into an extra ordinary circumstance thereby portraying himself as a character because alcohol has contributed to so many social menace.

      Rossimobis. Hi. This is a wonderful article for anyone facing this problem (illness).

      As you say first they must admit to themselves that they are alcoholics and want help, before they can accept advice or help from anybody else.

      Here in Australia we have a huge problem with very young folks binge drinking.

      I believe any person with this problem reading your story will get a lot out of it and hopefully realize that they are not alone and seek help.

      Thank you for sharing it with us. Voted up. :) :)
