  1. Despite its copyright of 1981, this book gives a convincing, easily understood explanation of how differently alcohol is processed by persons who are predisposed to alcoholism It goes on to suggest useful treatment, including complete abstinence, support and nutritional changes I learned a lot

  2. This book will scare the shit out of you, and it was written in 1981 I wish they would update it because it would be interesting to see therecent scientific findings Despite being written in the late 70s, it doesn t seem dated, which is eerie The book is about what happens to the body, physiologically, when a person drinks and or goes down the path of becoming an alcoholic Alcohol in many ways is WORSE than narcotics because it stunts the growth of EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY Whereas narc This book will scare the shit out of you, and it was written in 1981 I wish they would update it because it would be interesting to see therecent scientific findings Despite being written in the late 70s, it doesn t seem dated, which is eerie The book is about what happens to the body, physiologically, when a person drinks and or goes down the path of becoming an alcoholic Alcohol in many ways is WORSE than narcotics because it stunts the growth of EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY Whereas narcotics go for the brain and wreak havoc from there They re both bad, but it s amazing to me just how socially acceptable alcohol is, while other drugs are perceived so much worse The first third of the book is very scientific and dry But if you can slug through that, you ll be amazed and horrified If you have anyone in your life who drinks even if it just seems like they are one of those people who are fun and can drink everyone under the table , this is a MUST read And I do find that the push pul...

  3. VERY interesting book I particularly found the section on the importance of diet and nutrition in treatment to be extremely enlightening.

  4. It gave me a better understanding of alcoholism especially of the physical part of the addiction It made me understand better the metabolism problems of alcoholics.

  5. Outdated information and highly prejudiced towards this doctor s particular take on alcoholism andidiosyncratically, its treatment.

  6. I read this several years ago and thought it was amazing It describes alcoholism as a disease and spells out the biological and physiological reasons why it s a disease What occurs in the body of an alcoholic is drastically different than what occurs in someone who is not an alcoholic Hence the label of alcoholic someone whose body cannot properly or normally process or metabolize ethanol Of course there are some...

  7. This book was an eye opener for me I vaguely understood that some people become alcoholics, but had no idea what percentage of the general population is actually alcohol dependent Also, I did not know of the term problem drinker before I read this Only around 10% of people are alcoholics, primarily because their liver does not metabolize alcohol correctly The first few chapters detail this phenomenon, and they are a bit technical frankly, I had to re read them to even begin to grasp what This book was an eye opener for me I vaguely understood that some people become alcoholics, but had no idea what percentage of the general population is actually alcohol dependent Also, I did not know of the term problem drinker before I read this Only around 10% of people are alcoholics, primarily because their liver does not metabolize alcohol correctly The first few chapters detail this phenomenon, and they are a bit technical frankly, I had to re read them to even begin to grasp what the heck is going on in the liver The author repeatedly emphasizes that it is counterproductive to treat alcoholism as the byproduct of mental illness, even if the individual has co existing psychological issues In other words, poverty and mental disease do not turn people into alcoholics they are susceptible due to genetics or the aforementioned metabolic processing problem or they re not He also points out the shortcomings of AA, whi...

  8. Since the book is so old, I m not convinced the stats are accurateI think it s a lotprevalent than most acknowledge But human behavior doesn t changeso the descriptions are spot on I learned a lot The author makes a big effort to distinguish between an alcoholic and problem alcohol behavior Scientifically, that is importantbut in terms of life consequences and the fall out, the distinction seems unimportant.Side noteWhen did drinking become so pervasive It s so common and Since the book is so old, I m not convinced the stats are accurateI think it s a lotprevalent than most acknowledge But human behavior doesn t changeso the descriptions are spot on I learned a lot The author makes a big effort to distinguish between an alcoholic and problem alcohol behavior Scientifically, that is importantbut in terms of life consequences and the fall out, the distinction seems unimportant.Side noteWhen did drinking become so pervasive It s so common and so accepted and normal pretty much all the time Breakfast, lunch, dinner, weekday, weekend, normal day, holiday, after exerciseday time doesn t seem to matterI m almost always the odd one for participating in the event but choosing to do so without a drink It s very rare for me to receive any kind of invitation that doesn t revolve around alcohol And I don t mean a social event where people will probably have a drinkI mean having a drink is the reason for the invi...
