Q: 

Is alcoholism Really a Disease?

A: They call it a disease not to make excuses for people, but to emphasize how serious it is and how hard it is to overcome -- and also that you can''t ever get rid of the underlying condition. People who call it a disease believe that it is impossible for a drunk to ever be in control of alcohol, unless they stay away from it completely. Drunks feel sorry for themselves, and they make excuses -- any excuse they can think of. That might as well be part of the definition of active alcoholism. Don''t listen to them. Instead, ask a recovering alcoholic -- someone who has stopped drinking and is working to stay free of...


Q: 

Do you believe that alcoholism is a disease?

A: For some, yes. i believe it is a mental illness which is entirely controllable, as are many other things that are labeled “diseases”. that being said, it''s a slow descent into alcoholism To me a disease is say cancer, or AIDS. alcoholism is not cancer or AIDS. People made a conscious choice to take that first drink, as well as the next one, and the next one, and all of the ones after that. No one chose to get cancer. Though they can choose to have sex which could lead to AIDS, it is completely out of their control after that point. Even if they decide not to have AIDS anymore, they''ll still have it....


Q: 

Do You Believe alcoholism Is A Disease?

A: I reflect saying that it''s a disease is an excuse for not one able to control yourself. IT IS A CHOICE! I smoked for 5 years and quit cold turkey when I found out I be pregnant, no problems. Peoples addictions are adjectives in their minds. Why doesn''t anyone want to thieve responsibility for themselves? it''s sad. Of course we adjectives do things that are bad for us (eating cheesecake, driving in need a seat belt) But you brand name your own choices. You reach for that bottle, you get for that beer. It a conscious choice. hino, it''s an addiction caused by psychological dependenceI agree alcoholism should be classified an bad health. I''m uncomfortable next to it being a "dise

Q: 

Do you ponder alcoholism is a DISEasE?

A: i''ve other had a problem beside that designation in a literal sense, yes it is a dis - contentment ing condition for some it may be a true physiological affliction for others it may be rooted in a psychological condition as for myself its only just a lifestyle that i have conciously chosen I reckon ism is attached to nouns so doctors,psychiatrists, psychologists..., can keep prescribing billion dollar industries. People want natural nouns from stress, or 15 minutes of fame on Dr. Phil.I contemplate an addiction is something that is genetic. Not necessarily a disease explicitly "contagious" but definitely carried through the genes. It is something that must be controlled, it is a disorder, at the really le

Q: 

Is drug addiction and alcoholism considered a disease? Why or why not?

A: Drug addiction and alcohol addiction is not a disease, but a choice. You do not have to be a passive bystander to an imaginary disease of drug addiction or alcohol addiction; give up your will; be labeled as an alcoholic or "in recovery"; or attend meetings and treatment for the rest of your life! Those who struggle with alcohol addiction or drug addiction are finding that often the mainstream thinking isn?t helping them. Three or four alcohol or drug rehabs later, many counseling sessions attended, and hundreds or even thousands of dollars spent only to find out that relapse is a part of treatment and the drug or alcohol addiction "disease" is with you forever!...

And water should be taken in more excess amounts....
Q: 

Do you believe alcoholism is a disease or merely an addiction? Or are the terms both one and the same thing/

A: It''s not a disease. It''s a choice. I chose to drink for years. Now I choose not to. Just more politically correct, propaganda BS. I actually heavily resent it being called a disease. It makes too many alcoholics feel as if things are hopeless for them and that they have no control over whether to stop or not. It also gives too many of them an excuse to continue drinking. AA itself is really a terrible (and terribly ineffective) organization. They have something like a 5% success rate. Well, I used to be a heavy duty alcoholic and I quit by using (N)euro (L)inguistic (P)rogramming. For three years I''ve had at most a six pack of beer a month....
