Alcoholism is DEFINITELY a disease

Modern science has made this virtually indisputable. It is most certainly classified as a disease of the brain. I personally believe that AA and NA have actually perpetuated the ignorance and stigmas associated with alcoholism and have probably actually hindered scientific research.

yes it is a disease

I agree alcoholism is a disease
by: C-P

There's too much evidence that supports the fact that alcoholism and addiction are diseases.
Now I think this information is helpful to some when trying to combat the disease of alcoholism or addiction because it allows them to admit that they are powerless to control their addiction and so need to get professional help. But others use that as an excuse to justify their drinking or using - i.e. "it's a disease, I can't control it."
So I believe like with any illness or disease - people need to take responsibility for getting proper help and treatment so that they can recover successfully.
