Is an Alcoholic a Drug Addict?

Most people have the idea that alcohol is not a drug. Hey, let's face it, it's legal to drink, as long as you're old enough by the local law wherever you are. So that's OK then. It's seen as socially Acceptable.

But of course alcohol is a drug, and alcoholism is just as much a form of drug addiction, as serious as being addicted to marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or any other "Non-legal" drug. The problem is that so many people regard alcohol as just another beverage.

An alcoholic can't live without the "high" that it gives them. Just to re-inforce the point the Food and Drug Administration has in fact classified alcohol as a drug. So by any sensible person's definition an alcoholic is a drug addict.

It's not all doom and gloom, alcoholics can get help for their addiction, just as addicts to other substances can. I'm sure we have all heard of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.). These are groups of people in pretty much every town, usually run by ex alcoholics, who meets at regular intervals, and work on "The twelve steps to recovery." This is a hard road, and it is accepted that an alcoholic is always an alcoholic and always "recovering."

If you believe that you may be addicted to alcohol and you want to do something about it then get help quickly. The sooner the better. It is everyone's right to have a good long, healthy life. It's not too late. As always, the best time to start your recovery is right now.

It's also very easy to hide one's alcohol addiction as it's a socially acceptable norm to enjoy alcohol in public situations. I think it's also difficult for someone to admit that they are an addict. Like any addiction the only way to cure your addiction is to abstain completely from alcohol.

It is the most common addiction i have found in most people.Also i was a bit addicted to the alcohol in past but not at extreme level and the thing is that it should not be your necessity.I knew some of the persons who are too much addicted that they can't eat or sleep before alcohol.I think this level addiction should not be in any person.
