my hubby and i debate this issue all the time! also,is it hereditary?
Wow, I have never heard so many women in one place that have NO clue as to what the hell they are talking about! In 1956 after extensive research,alcoholism began being listed as a disease in every Medical paper and Medical Book. Self inflicted?Cancer is self inflicted also, Diabetes also. Are these not diseases? Of course they are. NO alcoholic WANTS to lose everything.It has NOTHING to do with willpower! Try getting rid of a tumor with willpower. Or diarrhea (Chrohns Disease) Please be informed before you judge

it is a addiction that can cause a disease... It is hereditary but its not.. its not in your DNA that you will be a alcoholic but if you are raised a certain way you will be more like to became one.

I know it's a disease. Growing up with a father who was an alcoholic. My grandmother on my fathers side was an alcoholic she did of serous es of the liver. She had tons of kids of which 6 are alcoholics. My uncle and dad died of the same thing. My father was 52 years old. He was a good man hard working and he always provided for the family, but he had that disease he could not cure. I love my dad and he was the world to me. I am the oldest of 7 and we witnessed all his drinking that in all honesty none of us drink or smoke. So it may be hereditary but you choose your destiny and you don't let alcoholism choose you.
