Alcoholism Impact On Family
There is a saying concerning the disease of alcoholism in families – One person may drink, however, alcoholism’s effects on the family are great.
Many people who have an addiction to alcohol want to believe that their addiction is only hurting themselves. However, deep down they know that’s not true. It is hard to admit when drinking is causing problems in the home.
As women, we cherish our families and want nothing but the best for them. It is important to realize that alcoholism is a disease. It is a disease just like cancer and diabetes are diseases. No one sets out to become an alcoholic and if you could stop drinking on your own, you would.
