Ten of millions Americans suffer from alcoholism, yet most people still wrongly believe that alcoholism is a psychological or moral problem, and that it can be cured by psychotherapy or sheer will power.

How to tell if someone you know is an alcoholic.

Why frequently prescribed drugs can be dangerous -- even fatal -- for alcoholics.
How to ensure a lasting recovery.

I can't believe the information in this book isn't being widely publicized and utilized in treatment centers, etc. The information in this book, finally, explains exactly why the alcoholic drinker reacts differently to alcohol than other drinkers. It finally puts to rest the questions and confusion and really helped me understand that it is not at all an issue of morals, determination or will-power, but an actual metabolic difference. So simple - yet so incredibly enlightening.
Again - if you or someone you know has a drinking problem, this book is invaluable in understanding what's happening inside the body of the alcoholic. This is a MUST READ for anyone affected by alcoholism.
