Alcohol dependence is a kind of psychiatric diagnosis which describes the physical addiction towards alcohol. A person should converge three out of the total seven possible criterions in merely 12 months with respect to achieve alcoholic dependence described in DSM IV. The first criterion is associated to the physiological dependency that is described to be the tolerance and the second one is withdrawal. The third and fourth criterion will signify the convention of control loss while drinking and also the failure experienced while quitting drinking. The fifth and sixth criteria indicate the advancement of dependency that changes the present style of living. The seventh criterion of alcohol dependence could be met, while the person intakes alcohol regularly without being alarmed about the dreadfulness of drinking. It causes some psychological causes.

Everyone does not satisfy the similar criterion and thus everyone does not have the similar problem and symptoms that relates to alcoholic drinking. With respect to alcohol dependence, only three out the seven criterions are closely looked for! Every individuals participating with alcohol dependence does not meet psychological dependence. There is a difference between alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse. They are differentiated by the symptoms like withdrawal and tolerance. Alcohol dependence is sometimes referred as alcoholism. Around 12% of adults in USA are facing the alcohol dependence trouble and they suffer badly with the serious impacts.

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
