Do you ever wonder why you have a problem with alcohol? Do you know the reasons? Reasons vary person to person. My belief is that it is physiological, not psychological. "The alcoholic's enzymes, hormones, genes, and brain chemistry work togehter to create his abnormal and unfortunate reaction to alcohol", a quote from "Under The Influence", by Dr. James R. Milam and Katherine Ketcham. Have you ever asked someone who doesn't drink the reason why they don't? I have, and the one reason is that they feel sick if they do. Their body reacts to it like this. For some reason, alcoholics don't have that reaction-hence body, brain chemistry.
There are other reasons, which I will bring forth from time to time. I hope this gives the lurkers and posters some insight.
Anyhow-have a great day! Hope things are going good for all!!
