Alcoholism doesn't care about social or financial status. It doesn't know race or creed. It doesn't care about age or infirmity. Once it has you it is almost impossible to beat and is a vicious cycle putting most on a carousel that most feel helpless to jump off of. Is there hope? Is there a solution?
For those who suffer from this terrible affliction, there is a place you can go that is safe, friendly and inviting. It is also famous for its anonymity. This place is Alcoholics Anonymous or AA. It was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr Bob Smith, both notorious alcoholics. When they were at the worst points of their suffering they came together and established what we now know as AA. It's "Primary Purpose" was for alcoholics to help other alcoholics obtain sobriety and maintain sobriety.
The program has evolved through the years and we now have Al-anon, a program for those who suffer the effects of having a friend or loved one who is an alcoholic. It is a support-based program to help those with an alcoholic family member. It gives them the tools to help them cope and hopefully lead the suffering alcoholic to get help. For the younger set, there is Alateen. It is specifically geared for the teens who suffer from the debilitating effects that alcohol has on a family.
The success lays in going to a meeting, getting support, learning about the 12 steps and 12 traditions. Get involved and get a sponsor. We'll assist you to find the help and the support you need amongst other individuals who suffer from the exact same thing you do.
