Alcoholism is an illness, according to alcoholics anonymous. A slang term for a alcoholics anonymous is A.A. Alcoholics lose control over their drinking because they are sick…ill in the body and the mind (or emotions). If an alcoholic does not stop drinking, their alcoholism will always get worse and worse, as alcoholism is what we call a progressive disease. Progressive means that it will not ever get better. Medical science has not found a cure yet for alcoholism. The disease can be arrested but not cured.

What is alcoholism..? Alcoholism is an illness, according to alcoholics anonymous. Once a person crosses the line with his ot her drinking and becomes alcoholic, they remain that way for life.

Once that an alcoholic is convinced that he or she can not live with alcohol, the dependency becomes an obsession. When the alcoholic drinks even though he or she has promised themselves that they would not drink, this is classified as compulsion.
It is in the nature of alcoholism that an alcoholic believes they are not ill. Alcoholics have this belief that they are “OK” because that there are “much harder” drugs out there. This is what we call denial. The problem is that alcoholics many times end up using those very drugs. And by the way, alcohol is a drug.

Usually, drinking alcohol initially elevates the person’s mood. However, after a long period of regular heavy drinking the person’s nervous system will become depressed and the drinker will become sedated by alcohol. It is widely known that alcohol is a major depressant to the Central Nervous System (CNS). So each time an alcoholic drinks alcohol, his or her system is being affected in a negative way.
Alcohol may undermine a person’s judgment; it can lower inhibitions and alter the drinker’s thoughts, emotions and general behavior. Heavy regular drinking can have a serious effect on a person’s ability to coordinate his/her muscles and speak properly. Heavy binge drinking could cause the patient to go into a coma.
