Alcohol Abuse Statistics

Alcohol Abuse Statistics is not always about the numbers.

It is more about how many people are affected by Substance Abuse and Addiction. It is a continuing problem in the world that affects millions of people and their families.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism says that 1 in 14 children grow up with someone in the home that has a problem with alcohol or drugs.

Now with the lucky ones that seek help and go to a rehab, the statistics of staying sober for more than 1 year is 1 in 32. This is from a traditional 12 step program.

That is staggering.

There are other alternatives to the 12 step program that you can investigate. Saint Jude Retreats is one of them.

It does not matter which kind of program you choose, it is important to choose one. If it is for a loved one just get them started.

Why is this Important?. If we do not take the time to understand why our life's are the way they are, we will forever be lost.

One of the most important steps you can do in recovery is to learn how to change.

The Key to Happiness is the Ability to Change

“Since the earliest period of our life was preverbal, everything depended on emotional interaction. Without someone to reflect our emotions, we had no way of knowing who we were.”  

John Bradshaw

John is an American educator, counselor, motivational speaker and author who has hosted a number of PBS television programs on topics such as addiction, recovery, codependency and spirituality. He believes that over 90% of the population is dysfunctional. This is significant not only from as a society but it has a great impact on what we expect from ourselves and others.

Alcohol Abuse Statistics and you

Quimby Manuscripts

QUESTION 1. You must have a feeling of repugnance towards certain patients. How do you overcome it and how can I do the same?

Answer. In order to make you fully understand how I overcome the repugnance it will require some little explanation of my mode of curing, for my cures are in my belief or wisdom, and the patient's disease is in his belief or knowledge. Now my wisdom is not knowledge, for what a man thinks he knows is knowledge or opinion, but what is wisdom to a man, he has no opinion about. As God is Wisdom, Wisdom is Science and we call the proof of getting Science knowledge, belief or reason; but when the answer comes, our knowledge vanishes and we are swallowed up in God or Wisdom. The sick are strangers to this Wisdom, being led by false guides without it, who have eyes and see not, ears and hear not, and hearts that cannot understand, therefore like strangers they are at the mercy of every one's opinion. Having a strong desire for wisdom or health, they call on every one for their food or wisdom. So when they ask for bread they receive a stone, or for water they receive vinegar, and thus they are driven like sheep to the slaughter, not daring to open their mouths. This is the state of the patient who asks the above question. My wisdom sees their condition, feels their woes and comes to the rescue, but to get them from their enemy is often an arduous task. The repugnance of which you speak is not towards their personal senses, but to the ideas their senses are attached to. As the ideas are knowledge to them, they are a person besides themselves and it is the identity disease that I first come in contact with. This is what I have to annihilate, and at first I sometimes feel a repugnance towards the sick such as a man will feel in entering a penitentiary to rescue a victim, who has been innocently confined, the disturbance of the rescue sets the house in an uproar, the victim not knowing the cause is as much frightened as her enemies. But when I succeed in destroying her enemies or opinion and get her to wisdom or [her real] self she receives me as one who has saved her from the jaws of death. This to her is health and happiness. You say how can I do the same? If you believe this Wisdom is superior to opinions, and that opinions are nothing but error that man has embraced, then when you come in contact with a person diseased, your wisdom will throw the mantle of charity over their errors, if it is for the restoration of their health. But if the repugnance arises from some unknown cause, examine yourself and see if the fault lies at your own door. If not you may be sure it is some false opinion in the person that troubles them. So to overcome their evil or error, pour on coals from, the fire of love or charity in the form of right reason till you melt down the image of brass that is set up in their minds, and they will leave their errors and embrace the truth. This is heaven.

Our Character Defects do not have to lead to a negative experience. We can learn from our shortcomings and turn them into a positive learning experience. Something like this and growing from learning about ourselves can be an invaluable experience.

Alcoholism is thought to be a disease. It may be why some are at more risk than others. Like any dis-ease it can be healed.

If you are told otherwise investigate further because I am here to tell you that you can be healed and your life can be healthier than you had ever hoped for.

You are who you are, as I am who I am, and that is wonderful because we are one with each other and one with the one mind of GOD.

Alcohol Abuse Statistics was written so you could see that you are not alone. Most people are afraid of what they have become, so they do not do the work necessary to change.
