What is alcoholism?
An alcoholic loses the will to consistently stop drinking when needed or wanted. They will also crave alcohol when not drinking and crave more alcohol even when drinking. They may also be in denial about their drinking and its effects on them.
Regardless of the moral, medical, psychological or political issues about alcoholism, alcoholics are in dire straights and need appropriate and effective help.
Effective help includes showing them how to;
- develop a deep desire to stop drinking
- accept responsibility for their health,
- be a good spouse and/or parent,
- partake in extended family life,
- be a good employee or boss,
- become a good citizen and community minded,
- Obey and promote the law,
Obviously you are not responsible for other peoples actions.
All you can do is point the way to sobriety.
The Brief Twelve Step Facilitation presenter can do so without becoming frustrated.
