Alcohol Problems and Solutions
This book explains the basic facts of alcohol abuse and the
consequences. Alcoholic Beverages are the "Great Imitators," since regular
ingestion of alcoholic beverages in excess produces many disease patterns
involving every part of the body. Even moderate alcohol abuse can
distort the personality, emotions and intellect of the "social drinker,"
producing the commonest patterns of psychopathology that afflict our society.
The personality distortion is a consequence of brain dysfunction cause by
ethanol, other chemical pathogens in alcoholic beverages and malnutrition.
We have different readers in mind:
- People who are close to an alcoholic and are learning more about how to help
- People who suspect that they are drinking too much and have enough common
sense and instinct for health that they are learning about alcoholism, defining
their own problem and planning to solve that problem before it gets out of
- People in recovery who are already involved in AA, other programs and are
struggling with addictive patterns of eating and drinking and need to learn more
about long-term recovery.
- People who are involved in alcohol abuse prevention programs.
- People who are involved in the treatment of alcoholics.
Good self-care has several components:
- You learn as much as you can about the problem
- You avoid dogmatic positions and unrealistic beliefs.
- You plan to sustain beneficial changes for years to come.
There are a variety of drinking patterns and the range of injury among
alcohol abusers is great. Some are mildly injured and can recover on their own
with the right tools and techniques. Others are critically injured and need
hospitalization and prolonged rehabilitation with custodial supervision.
The book also explains how a recovering alcoholic can restore healthy nutrition
that will support long-term success. A food holiday on Alpha ENF is often the
best way to begin recovery and the Alpha Nutrition Program is an ideal way to
design a safer, healthier long-term diet.
