'Understanding Alcoholism as a Brain Disease' includes an in-depth explanation of how alcoholism works inside the brain; the stages of alcoholism identified by scientific researchers; and a list of clues to your genetic vulnerability. Written in plain English from a true medical perspective, even if you aren’t a doctor or scientist, you’ll find this book easy to read and understand. Care-givers and loved-ones ask over and over again, ‘Why does the alcoholic keep drinking or continue to return to drinking, despite all they continue to lose?’, ‘How can they keep drinking when it is killing them and irreparably damaging relationships?’, ‘What is wrong with them?!’ Alcoholics berate themselves and question why they keep drinking when they see the damage it causes. They ask, ‘What is wrong with me?’ The answers to those agonizing questions are found in this book. The answers have nothing to do with how much the alcoholic loves himself or you, their level of ‘spiritual awareness’, or their ‘flawed character’. Instead, the answers are medical in nature, and relate to the way that alcoholism hijacks and damages the brain. Alcoholism is a brain disease: this book will help you understand the disease in a way that will give you new perspectives on this devastating neurological condition.
