Alcoholism affects more men than women. Studies reveal that children of alcoholic parents are more prone to abuse alcohol than children of nondrinkers. It is possible that some children are born with abnormal levels of various neurotransmitters or defective receptors in the nucleus accumbens, and other sites of the brain. Chronic stress or anxiety also can promote brain deficiencies. Consequently, many seem to engage in artificial pleasure-producing activities. Alcoholism can develop at any age. Alcoholics usually deny their problem. In severe alcoholism, detoxification may require medical supervision. Chronic drinkers undergo personality changes and suffer mental, physical, spiritual, and social ill effects. People who repeatedly abuse alcohol or drugs develop a deficiency of most of the brain chemicals, especially dopamine.Depression, suicide, violence, crime, and marital breakdown plague alcoholics. God can deliver you from every addiction and abnormal pleasure-enhancing activity. In the concluding verse of the beautiful sixteenth Psalm, David so eloquently wrote about God’s loving care, “You will show me the way of life; in your presence is fullness of joy. You have made available to me endless pleasures at your right hand” (Psalm 16:11). Are you thinking about quitting? Don’t procrastinate; be accountable and open.
