More Description

Alcohol and Ethics: The Myths and Facts explores commonly held misconceptions about addictive diseases, especially alcoholism, and how these misconceptions hinder the recoveries of alcoholics, addicts, and their family members. Understanding that no addict chooses his/her addiction and the terrible consequences that result from the drug or alcohol induced behavior that alcoholics and addicts usually display is the first step to solving the myriad of problems that alcoholism and drug addiction cause in many people's lives. As alcoholics, addicts and their family members themselves often believe the myths, guilt, fear, shame, anxiety, denial and other negative emotions often prevent the addicted person from seeking help and family members from intervening in the addictions until they have lost much of what makes life worth living, loving relationships, careers, health and freedom. As employers, legal personnel and some medical people also believe these myths, they often treat alcoholics and addicts as morally inferior people. No theory of right and wrong encompasses such unfair treatment, as alcoholics and addicts are not bad people trying to get good, but are sick people trying to get well. This book attempts to expose the myths as misunderstandings and replace them with facts that can help solve the problems that come with alcoholism and addictions for everyone whose lives get touched by the alcoholic or addict. This book's purpose is to help solve problems for anyone affected by these terrible diseases.
