Is a Drink of Alcohol Really Worth It?
Alcohol: Abusing alcohol causes not only physical problems but can also cause mental, emotional and social problems which often lead to the destruction of relationships, friendships and marriages.
25% of adults in the US (approximately 31 million people) have had at least one heavy drinking day in the past year. Heavy drinking is defined as five or more drinks for men and four or more drinks for women in one day).
Attempting withdrawing from alcohol without proper medical attention can be fatal in some cases and terribly painful—physically and mentally—in the best case scenario.
The fear of dealing with the withdrawals and cravings alone can be a big barrier to recovery.
Because alcohol is so widely accepted and prevalent in our society, a person can be faced with a full-fledged addiction before they realize it.
“My addiction built steadily and, before I realized it, I had become a morning as well as an afternoon drinker. I decided to stop drinking. I lay awake most of that night, and by noon the next day every bone in my body ached. In a blind panic, I nervously poured a glass full of gin, my hands shaking so violently that I spilled half the bottle. As I gulped it down, I could feel the agony gradually lessening. Then I finally knew the terrible truth: I was hooked. I couldn’t quit.” —Faye
