Alcohol is a wonderful thing. It can be used for celebrations, both good and bad!
It can be used to toast to someone's good fortune or hope for a better future. It can be used in an expression of undying love or simply to enjoy a relaxing moment at the end of a difficult work week.
But alcohol can be an evil thing, also. Alcohol can cause brain damage, heart problems, and strokes. Alcohol can lead to liver damage. Alcohol can lead to drunken driving accidents and even death.
Why alcohol is such a problem for some people and not for others still remains a mystery. But the fact is that alcohol is such a problem for some people that it can have life-threatening consequences. Some people become so horribly addicted to alcohol that they lose jobs, families, friends-everything. And still, they continue to drink.
These people are called alcoholics, and this book was written for them. The alcoholic has a disease called alcoholism, and like anyone else with a disease, they need help.
The problem is that the alcoholic is usually the last one to know that they have a problem, much less getting them to admit it. But the alcoholic must be the one to admit to the depth of their problem and to ask for help before that help will be effective. No one can make the alcoholic quit drinking; they must travel that path by themselves.
