Learning How To Stop Being An Alcoholic
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Alcoholism is a very difficult problem. But, learning how to stop being an alcoholic was easy once I identified what the true problem was. I previously thought alcoholism was a mental problem with people who couldn't seem to handle reality. At least that is what most people think. For me it was more of a puzzle that could not be solved. In most cases, I wasn't ever sure why I began to drink and why I could not stop once I started. It was as if I was on auto-pilot with absolutely no control. This phenomenon had me baffled along with doctors, scientists, and society.

After many years of struggling with what I thought was a disease, I finally started looking for the truth about alcoholism. This took some time and a lot of digging. I discovered studies going back to the early 1950's that began to make sense. The research showed that it was possible to stop being an alcoholic. The cause of alcoholism was found to be related to a person's biochemistry. Since this did not fit the original treatment model of the day, it was discounted at first.

Over the years, more and more of these studies were done and all of them began to point to the same thing. The main reasons people suffer from alcoholism is exposure to toxins and nutritional deficiencies. These people develop a biochemical disorder that produces tremendous cravings for alcohol in certain situations. What is more compelling is that fact that the cravings are actually for sugar. Alcohol is simply the best and quickest way to get sugar into the bloodstream. This is why alcoholics drink.

These are physical problems that can be resolved with the right kind of treatment. In essence, a person can stop being an alcoholic by correcting their biochemistry. This usually takes some time, but it can be done. This is because nearly every alcoholic is also hypoglycemic. They suffer from severe blood sugar fluctuations brought on by years of eating sugar and processed foods. The unhealthy diet throws the body into an addiction to sugar because of the damage done to what is called the endocrine system. This condition adversely affects the neurotransmitters in the brain causing what is commonly known as alcoholism.

I learned how to stop being an alcoholic by reading several excellent books on the subject. All these books focused on nutrition and diet as the solution for alcoholism. They are not well-known because a false paradigm exists and it is human nature to hold on to old beliefs. The standard belief is that alcoholics have a moral or mental problem, not a physical problem.

If you would like to learn how to stop being an alcoholic, all the tools are available to you. They are inexpensive and very effective. I am convinced that if you use the resources I did, you can learn how to stop being an alcoholic also.
