How Alcoholism Affects The Family Part 1
Alcoholism affects millions, perhaps up to a billion, people throughout the world. It is not only the alcoholic who is affected by this struggle, but those around him or her as well. Oftentimes, the alcoholic does not consider how their actions are affecting their spouse, children, parents, and even friends.
Sometimes, they may believe that they are doing little or no harm at all to those around them; unfortunately the truth of the matter is that addiction does affect these individuals just as much. In order for an addict to fully recover, he or she must understand the long term implications that alcoholism had on their loved ones.
