It’s Easy to Identify an Alcoholic

Once again, there are many stereotypes that surround alcoholism. Many people think an alcoholic is someone that appears dirty, disheveled, or jobless. When in reality, 20 percent of alcoholics are highly functional and well-educated with good incomes. This is proof that it’s not as easy to identify addiction as most think.

It’s a Moral Dilemma

It’s a common misconception that alcoholism is a choice. Many people think that if an individual wants to quit drinking, and hasn’t been successful they just aren’t “trying hard enough”. This could not be more incorrect. Alcoholism is a disease and needs to be treated accordingly.
