It has been noticed in many surveys that are done on the teens that the teen drug abuse is increasing massively. All the wilderness treatment centers have seen majority of teens joining the programs. But what is the reason for this. Aren’t they monitored in school or aren’t they taken care of well. Didn’t they attend the drug awareness programs or were they not conducted at all? Questions are so many, but has anyone even tried to know the reason. There are so many students in schools and colleges that take drugs, alcohol and tobacco in the school premises, but why hasn’t the school taken any action or are they not aware?
What is Alcoholism?
Alcoholism is defined as an irresistible urge to consume alcohol. People suffering from alcoholism are very well aware of the dangerous effects alcohol could have on their bodies, but still they are unable to resist the urge to consume it. They will usually drink beyond acceptable limits and will be in an inebriated state most often, causing embarrassment and inconvenience to the people with them.
Of all the people I have encountered who once struggled as an alcoholic, but don’t anymore, none of them said it was their spouse’s or families’ fault. “If only he/she did not enable me so much” or “if only he/she was not a codependent, I could have stopped drinking sooner”, are two statements I have never heard from a recovered alcoholic. In fact, it is the complete opposite. Those who have “recovered” value the strength and understanding they received from others.
