For some people there is a biological pre-disposition. However, my use of the term for the purposes of this board takes into consideration all the reasons one might abuse alcohol. Abuse of any substance indicates an emotional problem, at the very least. Emotional problems can be classified as a disease.<quoted text>
When you try to live your life by keeping man made rules you will never experience the grace of God.
Alcoholism is not a disease Regina....it's a choice one has made. If you call it a disease like the rest of the world, there is no accountability for the individual.
Disease...give me a break
I agree the term is overused and negates personal responsibility.
