Smallcap Company Dedicated to Treatment/Recovery of Alcoholism Addiction is an Option for Healthcare Investment
Am I an Alcoholic?
It's often a touch, soul-searching, gut-wrenching question. But one that needs to be answered if there is even a question about it. For many, alcoholism has become the "demon" that derailed an otherwise wonderful life. For others it became the very thing that killed them. Alcoholism is indeed a killer-disease, but help is available. Some have not only conquered their alcoholism, but used the struggle to become better, more enlightened, more compassionate, more self-controlled human beings.
What exactly is alcoholism?
Check out the definition given by the American Counsel on Alcoholism:
"Alcoholism is a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychological, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. This disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by continuous or periodic: impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial."
The consequences of alcohol abuse are serious, potentially even life threatening. Irresponsible drinking can cause liver cirrhosis, immune system problems, brain damage, and harm to the fetus during pregnancy. It can also increase the risk for certain cancers, especially those of the liver, esophagus, throat, and voice box or larynx.
Besides being detrimental to the body, drinking notoriously increases the risk of serious injury and even death from automobile crashes. Alcohol-related accidents are so prevalent; an estimated 40 percent of all persons in the United States will be involved in a traffic mishap blamed on alcohol at some point in their lives. Homicides and suicides are also more likely to be committed by persons who have been drinking. In purely economic terms, alcohol-related problems cost society approximately $185 billion per year. In human terms, the costs cannot be calculated.
Alcohol itself is not the enemy. Addiction to alcohol is the real problem. Moderate alcohol use'up to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women and older people'is not harmful for most adults. (A standard drink is one 12-ounce bottle or can of either beer or wine cooler, one 5-ounce glass of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits.) Nonetheless, for the Alcoholic, alcohol use is deadly fuel to an out-of-control fire.
IS THIS MY PROBLEM??
There are five defining signs that point to a real problem with alcohol. They are:
A strong need, or compulsion, to drink.
* Loss of control:
The inability to limit one's drinking on any given occasion.
* Physical dependence:
Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety occur when alcohol use is stopped after a period of excessive drinking.
The need to drink greater amounts of alcohol in order to "get a buzz."
* General Dysfunction: The deterioration or breakdown of personal and professional relationships and the inability to carry out commitments due to the behavioral influence or control of alcohol.
