The truth is if you want to help an alcoholic overcome their addiction, you have to be very aggressive because their addiction is aggressive. Not only can an alcohol addiction lead to death, but it can cause a great degree of havoc to be in people’s lives. Many alcoholics start drinking when they already have responsibilities and obligations. They may be able to be functioning at first, but sure enough, their lives and the people who depend on them will start to suffer. We have all heard the term “Functioning alcoholic”, but this is a term that is debatable. Even if a person is making it to work and to pick the kids up or whatever else they may have scheduled for the day, they are not functioning as the best person they can be, and no doubt their will be negative, if not catastrophic, results from doing these types of things while intoxicated.
Maybe people feel like it is too hard to stop this vicious cycle, due to it’s intense nature and the low success rates of programs and organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous. People feel like it is not their place to get involved in other people’s personal lives. They assume that if the person wanted to stop, they would, so why waste your time and energy on trying to make them change. The truth is they are completely taken over by alcohol and need serious help before something tragic happens. If you know someone who you think drinks too much, try to recognize if they have the alcohol withdrawal symptoms, because it will help you determine how dependant they are on alcohol.
