I have wondered plenty of time rather alcoholism or drug addiction is actually a disease. Like cancer is a disease. It sure does kill folks and destroy families and all that wacky stuff.
But is it a disease?
It’s a disease packaged in pretty bottles.
It’s a disease of choice, right? But wait!!
If you take a drink… Do you want another? And another?
Why would you want to keep doing something that could cause many problems for you and even kill you?
There’s no doubt about it. There is something up.
If you or somebody you love has ever dealt with (chances are you know somebody) addiction then you gotta think…. What the hell? That guy is sick!
Is he sick? Or perhaps –
He Can’t handle his liquor
What a way to be thought of — The dude that ‘can’t handle his liquor’
Now…What to do about it? Moderation???
It’s great to have so many resources these days…
The internet is a wonderful thing. What did we ever do without it?
You know we started crushing grapes a long time ago… This issue has been around a while huh?

One of the biggest problems my group has isn’t convincing folks that they have a problem. It’s convincing them to address the biggest one first and then deal with the other stuff. Nobody seems to want to do that. Everyone wants a reason or an excuse. They want to worry about the big bruise on their arm when there leg is cut off and they are bleeding out.
Indeed, don’t sweat the small stuff. I see people just do a 180 on EVERYTHING…But it’s often short lived.
