Alcoholism – Is it a disease or Weakness?
Alcoholism is a one of the most dangerous diseases. All the alcohol drinkers have lost their ability to control alcohol drinking, leading to physical and mental harm and loss of ability to behave in a society in a good manner. Alcoholism is a chronic, progressive, pathological condition that affects the nervous and digestive system, caused by the inability to stop drinking despite adverse consequences such as loss of job, family, and health. The disease is potentially fatal, however the most disturbing and debilitating part of alcoholism is the loss of self-respect, the possible job loss, and the toll it takes on the alcoholics family. There is also indication that there may be a genetic component with alcoholism.
