Alcoholism and the Disease of More: Why Our Brain ObsessesHolistic Recovery Centers

Alcoholism: The Disease of More I never realized before I came into the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous that I was an alcoholic, and I never even knew what an alcoholic really meant. When I heard the word, I always pictured a homeless old man, toothless and sitting under an overpass. I was uneducated on just how many people the disease of alcoholism and addiction affected. Once I was brought to my knees by my own mal-adaptation to drinking and well, life, I learned that alcoholism and addiction come in all different shapes and sizes. I learned that alcoholism is really an obsession of the mind, and an allergy of the body and that when we are sober, our mental obsession can act out in a...

Santa Clarita Central Office of A.A. - Alcoholism and Alcoholics

Alcoholism and Alcoholics Not too long ago, alcoholism was viewed as a moral problem. Today, many regard it primarily as a health problem. To each problem drinker, it will always remain an intensely personal matter. Alcoholics who approach A.A. frequently ask questions that apply to their own experience, their own fears, and their own hopes for a better way of life. There are many different ideas about what alcoholism really is. The explanation that seems to make sense to most A.A. members is that alcoholism is an illness, a progressive illness, which can never be cured but which, like some other diseases, can be arrested. Going one step further, many A.A.s feel that the illness represents...

A-Z Guide to Alcoholism & Depression

At Rehab 4 Alcoholism, we admit thousands of individuals into alcohol rehab centres each and every year. Because of this, we often get asked whether alcoholism is linked to depression. To address this question appropriately, we have decided to dedicate an entire article to this important subject. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) Experts now refer to alcoholism as alcohol use disorder or AUD. This is because problems people experience with alcohol should not be limited to cases that are considered a 'dependency'. AUD includes alcohol dependency, alcohol 'alcohol abuse' and 'heavy alcohol consumption' where a dependency has not arisen. To suffer from AUD, the user must...

Alcoholism and Depression: Frenemies Forever

Alcoholism and Depression: Frenemies Forever I’ve heard a thousand variations of this problem: “My brother is depressed, but he also drinks a lot, which is probably causing the depression. So which do you treat first? The alcoholism or the depression?” The two conditions are so intertwined that it can be impossible to separate them. Just last week I met with an executive director of a behavioral health program here in Annapolis. We were discussing how to start a faith-based initiative. “Should we also include substance abuse?” he asked. “Why?” asked a director of a separate program for those with severe mental illness. It’s the chicken-egg thing. People get depressed after ingesting a...

Alcoholism and Masculinity The Gooden Center

Alcoholism and Masculinity Historically, alcohol abuse has always been more prevalent among males than females although recent statistics have been slightly shifting. Overall, men tend to become addicted to alcohol more often than women and they tend to binge drink in greater amounts. There is an intricate relationship between alcohol and masculinity as many men feel they must drink alcohol and large amounts of it to prove their manhood or affirm that they are masculine. Social drinking has traditionally for many years been a cultural symbol of manliness which is often strengthened by media portrayals of alcohol and men. Some theories express that men with alcohol dependencies actually have...

LSD, Alcoholism and Transcendence

LSD, Alcoholism and Transcendence CHARLES SAVAGE, M.D. from: LSD, the Consciousness-Expanding Drug ©1964 David Solomon "Visit either you like: they're both mad." "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here." The Cat recognized what was not apparent to his Victorian contemporaries. We are all part of a sick society, troubled members of a troubled world. Inevitably many people look to drink for salvation. For some it is an imperfect salvation, leading to the couch, the hospital or the...
