I’m open to other forms of recovery, to other ideas (heck, that’s what got me sober), but one thing I just don’t understand is why anyone, especially us alcoholics, who say alcoholism isn’t a disease.
To me, from my own experience and from what I’ve seen in others, it’s a no brainer.
Alcoholism is a disease. Check out the definition below.
dis·ease noun, verb –noun 1. a disordered or incorrectly functioning organ, part, structure, or system of the body resulting from the effect of genetic or developmental errors, infection, poisons, nutritional deficiency or imbalance, toxicity, or unfavorable environmental factors; illness; sickness; ailment.
