An Introduction to Alcoholism, Xenos Christian Fellowship

An Introduction to Alcoholism Jim Leffel holds a B.A. in philosophy from The Ohio State University and an M.A. in Philosophy of Religion from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is a teacher and leader in Xenos and has been studying alcoholism and its effects for over a year. If alcoholism is a disease, then it is one of the greatest epidemics of modern times. While no real consensus exists among experts in the field concerning how alcoholism should be defined, recent statistics indicate that 10 million Americans are classified as alcoholics (i.e., those with chronic, problematic drinking patterns).

What is an Alcoholic? Am I an Alcoholic?, Quit

What is an Alcoholic? Am I an Alcoholic? If you want a dictionary definition, an alcoholic is a person who suffers from the disease of alcoholism. His or her brain has become dependent on alcohol to function, and without a drink, withdrawal symptoms occur. However, there is much more to the story. Alcoholism is a disease, and as with most diseases, there are levels of severity. So how can you tell if you’ve crossed the line from drinker to alcoholic? What do you do if you think you are an alcoholic? How do you stop? Who can help? We want to answer all of these questions for you.

Alcohol Statistics: Alcoholism Rates are Soaring in America

Over 88,000 die each year due to alcohol related fatalities, which is more than all of the opioid overdose fatalities put together. If the United States is facing an opioid addiction crisis, then there is no question that we are also facing an alcohol addiction crisis. Excessive alcohol use cost the United States 249 billion dollars in 2010. The cost comes from motor vehicle accidents caused by drinking (5%), criminal justice expenses (10%), the expense of treating medical problems or injuries related to excessive drinking (11%), and workplace productivity losses (72%). The cost of problem drinking is high in monetary value, but even higher in the reduced quality of life, and increased...

Stop Drinking Naturally, About 70% of "Alcoholics" Do. Lifetime Abstinence Not Always Mandatory

Most people do stop drinking without any help from other people. They quit cold turkey. They have to. Because: Rehab is a problem. Don’t believe me? Believe the professionals. You Have A Better Chance of Ending Your Addiction If You Are Never Exposed To Treatment Programs or 12-Step Programs. “There’s no such thing as an evidence-based rehab,” he says. “That’s because no matter what you do, the whole concept of rehab is flawed and unsupported by evidence.” [says] Dr. Mark Willenbring, former director of treatment and recovery research at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Conquering a drinking or addiction problem means overcoming a host of physical and...

Out of alcoholism and saved by Jesus--Dan s Story,

Out of alcoholism and saved by Jesus--Dan's Story I was a JW, Full time Pio., Ministerial servant and member of JW's for 10 years. After much ado my wife and I left the Org. My basic beliefs toward God became one of semi atheism. I wanted nothing to do with "Religion". I was sick of man's traditions and hypocrisy. This is my testimony 9 years after I left the JW's. I was delivered on May 7 1998. I was an alcoholic (severe) for 8 years after leaving the JW's. I became so bad that I could not go more than two hours with out a drink or I would start shaking and go on the verge of full D.T.'s. I knew I was in serious trouble. I went to my physician for help and took two weeks off from...

Ask an Expert: Will His Alcoholism Return If He Starts Drinking Again?, The Fix

Ask an Expert: Will His Alcoholism Return If He Starts Drinking Again? Will My Insurance Pay for Rehab? I have a loved one who is an alcoholic and stayed sober for about 5 years. He recently started drinking again. I have heard that the disease continues to progress while someone is sober, and because of that he will have a rapid increase in his drinking and a decline in mental and physical health. Is this a myth, or is there truth here? If true, how does the disease progress while someone stays sober? Janice Dorn: Thank you for reaching out for answers. It has to be disappointing for you, him and your family that he started drinking again after fix years of abstinence. We know that...

The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism, Part One, Thought Catalog

In my semi-homelessness, I find that I spend a lot of time cowering in public bathrooms. Sometimes to run hand-soap through my face and hair, but most times to fill up my thermos with vodka, which I then cleverly top off with Diet Coke (for I am an alcoholic who wishes to stay thin). Doing this, the thermos thing, involves hiding in a stall for a while, as I unscrew various bottles, trying not to splash or make too much noise. So, this gives me a lot of time to read bathroom stall graffiti. Mostly the graffiti is dumb. Drawings of penises or very short messages. For a good time call… Or short declarations: Chris loves Beth. John + Allie. Mike loves Jesus. It’s nice to see that...
