Alcohol Abuse

alcohol treatment

Alcohol abuse is a perfect handling of psychiatric diagnosis that is clearly described in DSM-IV. It describes the use of alcoholic beverage in spite of a negative result. It contains ethanol commonly known as alcohol which is a psychoactive drug and has depressant effect. The central nervous functioning badly gets depressed and it results to plenty of serious side effects. It is differentiated from the physical dependence of alcohol by lack of symptom such as withdrawal and tolerance. Sometimes it is referred as alcoholism. There are lots of definitions of alcoholism but among them only some are compatible with alcohol abuse. Currently, with comparable numbers in other countries, there are approximately 9 million alcoholics in United States alone. There is little difference between alcoholism and alcohol abuse according to Max Fisher who is the author of How do I stopped drinking.

Intake of alcohol will result in biphasic health effects and troubles the overall physique and they change from one time period to another. Bad level of alcohol intake could cause serious consequences like coordination troubles and blurred vision. When the level of alcohol tends to increase, it certainly disturbs the biological tissue, as the cell membranes present in the body are easily permeable to the impact of alcohol intake. Excessive drinking could lead to severe poisoning and even death. Regular intake of alcohol will risk the persons life by developing alcoholic liver disease, alcoholism side effects, and several other cancer types too. Huge intake of alcoholic level over a time period could badly affect the human brain and it hassles the mental development. Studies have shown that alcohol dependence relates directly to cravings and irritability. Considerable evidence suggests a connection between gravid alcohol intake and increased risk for cancer.

For example it can help to tend tissues that surround male abusers. Rehabilitation centers are instructed are instructed for detoxification if treated improperly as there can be serious physical effects including death.

RETRO STU posted a photo: (WTAU) Women’s Total Abstinence Union - member’s medal (1920’s or earlier) The Women’s Total Abstinence Union (WTAU) was a British temperance movement founded in 1893 as a breakaway group from the British Women’s Temperance Association (BWTA). This split was due to differences in policy towards women’s suffrage and political activism, against which the founding members of the WTAU preferred to distance themselves. Despite this, the WTAU maintained close links to other temperance and women’s movements with common aims and objectives.

The WTAU held their first conference on 2nd November 1894 and from there the organisation slowly grew as new branches were established throughout Britain and Ireland. By 1900, the WTAU had around 310 “federated societies”. These federated societies tended to be local affiliates of the WTAU who campaigned on their behalf, but under a different name.

WTAU campaigns were solely “anti drink” and directed against the sale of ‘intoxicating drinks’ to children, abuse of publican’s opening hours, repeal of grocer’s and shopkeeper’s licences to sell alcohol as well as campaigning for the care, treatment and reform of alcoholics (or inebriates as they were known then). Rank and file members would pay close attention to alcohol abuses by vendors and collect evidence against them.

By the outbreak of WW1 in 1914, the temperance movement was already in decline and this pace quickened after the war. By then, it was no longer an issue in national politics, where previously the Liberal Party has been the temperance movement’s greatest political ally. With general membership falling as well, the WTAU and the National British Women’s Temperance Association (NBWTA) merged in 1926 to form the National British Women’s Temperance Association Union. The NBWTAU was renamed the White Ribbon Association in 1993.

‘Wings’ was the official magazine of the WTAU which they retained control of after the split from the BWTA. It was published monthly at a cost of 1d (one penny) per issue and its logo was adapted for use by the WTAU, as seen with this badge. This same medal design was also issued as a pin badge.

ill ask him why it is,
that being bad and eating food
are specialties of his
ill ask about the postcards
that seem so very nice
but when i stand inside of them
im asking his advice,
on mannequins and music too
on cloudy times and me and you
on how to watch the sun fall down
and lifting up the rainy sounds
ill ask about the empty space
and how that i might find your face
and see you like i did before
the bottle turned us into whores

next time i see eugene
ill ask him why it is
that scratching things and sleeping
are specialties of his
