Becoming an Alcoholic
Becoming an Alcoholic
Becoming an Alcoholic, why me? I did not ask to be an Alcoholic that is for sure. I would not wish a battle with Alcoholism on my worst enemy, so to speak. Alcoholism is a terrible disease. Is it nature or nurture that causes one to become Alcoholic? Possibly it may be a little of both. But I lean in the direction that Alcoholism for any individual is a genetic predisposition. A real Alcoholic, in my opinion, is basically doomed from the day that the first drink is drunk. A real Alcoholic will take that first drink and find a new friend in alcohol. Alcohol suddenly makes that person who is predisposed to become an alcoholic drinker feel great, feel like they fit in, feel cool, feel like a hole inside them is suddenly filled. It is a psychological addiction at first. The physical addiction is coming, but it is way down the road. The feeling that one gets from drinking, being a little buzzed, or being drunk is a feeling that makes the alcoholic comfortable in social situations. Most alcoholics can remember those first episodes with alcohol and how it made them feel. The feeling of suddenly being part of the scene comes from the drinking of alcohol. The feeling of fitting in, where before in the same situation the individual without any alcohol in their system, felt like they did not fit in, that same person felt awkward and out of place. But with the help of alcohol suddenly magic happens and the new drinker now feels part of the scene, no longer awkward, no longer out of place, alcohol makes the new drinker feel whole and the world suddenly feels right and makes sense for the first time.

Becoming Alcoholic happens to you, the new drinker, without knowing what is really happening to you at all. The new drinker who has found a new friend; alcohol: is on the path to becoming an alcoholic, without even knowing it. You do not know you are going to become an alcoholic. There is no way early in your drinking career you can possibly think you are on the path to alcoholism. But guess what, this new drinker who has fallen in love with alcohol, is on their way to becoming alcoholic. It may take a few years, it may take ten years, but alcoholism is on the horizon for the new drinker.
I am going to try and end this post with some kind of summary. This topic deserves a chapter in a book, a minimum of 30 pages. But this is a blog post not an e-book. When the individual who is predisposed to becoming alcoholic takes that first drink, has their first series of drinking episodes, they find that long lost friend that they did not even know that they were missing; alcohol. Alcohol suddenly becomes their new love. Alcohol becomes their new friend that soon they want to take everywhere with them. Alcohol makes everything better. The new drinker no longer has to be alone or feel lonely. The new drinker has found their new friend; alcohol. Alcohol makes every situation better. Whether the new drinker is alone or with friends, alcohol makes it all better. And who is going to pass up the feeling of everything being better. When you may have always felt out of place in social situations, alcohol suddenly makes you feel that you fit in. When the new drinker used to be lonely at home alone, now alcohol makes being alone better. It’s okay to have a few drinks when you are home alone. Things you never did before the new drinker finds themselves doing. And none of this seems out of the ordinary. It all seems okay. You are a new drinker and you have found a new friend in alcohol. And you, the new drinker, most likely and unwillingly are on the path to becoming an alcoholic.
