Alcohol Addiction

ALCOHOL ADDICTION

Alcohol addiction is a disease, according to the American Medical Association. Unlike most diseases, alcoholism is the only disease that tells you that you are not ill.

If my story resonates with you, chances are you may have a problem with alcohol. You may be an alcoholic. Alcoholism is like pregnancy in many ways: you either are or you are not. If you are, how far along are you?

I was on a trip to Boston to attend the wedding of a friend’s brother. My wife, Sally, said “Please don’t drink too much. We have this executive loaner car and you don’t know the people or the area and I’m afraid if you get drunk you will wreck the car.” I agreed to just have one or two drinks.

Unfortunately, there was an open bar at the reception- just the kind of drinking environment I loved. I had one drink, then another, determined to stop before I was out of control. But I couldn’t stop drinking, even though I wanted to. I loaded that car with a group of strangers and got into a wreck. Fortunately, it was a minor accident, and no one was hurt.

I awoke the next morning terrified, because I had wanted to stop and couldn’t. I didn’t know what to do. Sally and I talked about it. I temporarily adjusted my drinking, started drinking more at home, switched from beer to scotch, started exercising and convinced myself I was okay. In a short amount of time, the downward spiral continued, as my drinking progressed into alcoholism.

Do you have your version of my story? If so, see if you can temporarily set aside your prejudices, denials, doubts, and fear long enough to open your mind and heart to this message. It may change your life.

If my story resonates with you, chances are you may have a problem with alcohol. You may be an alcoholic. Alcoholism is like pregnancy in many ways: you either are or you are not. If you are, how far along are you?

Alcohol addiction is a progressive disease; it always gets worse, never better. Alcoholics have what is called the "phenomenon of craving", which means once they take any alcohol at all, they cannot predict how much they will drink.
