Why is "Alcoholism" so prevelant in the world??
Could it be the fact that Billions of Dollars go into the clever marketing to continually entice/target us to drink at the different stages of the "lifestyle" disease? The mere fact that the alcohol industry/society has demonized the word "alcoholic" keeps many suffering alcoholics in the dark grips of the disease. When someone says "I have heart disease," "I am a diabetic" (two classic examples of life style diseases.) They don't get looked down upon. The minute you utter the word "alcoholic" for the most part society will automatically shunt you. It will take a mental/outlook overhaul for our society to take a closer look at this lifestyle disease and be more accepting of the suffering alcoholics out there. Hopefully someday the removal of the "Alcoholic Negative Stigma" will allow more people to simply live a healthier clean and sober life style.
