Dying for a Drink: What You and Your Family Should Know About Alcoholism
by Anderson Spickard, M.D. and Barbara R. Thompson
Are you looking for the answers to these questions?
- Why do people become alcoholics?
- Is addiction a disease or a sin?
- How do you tell if someone is simply drinking too much or is genuinely addicted?
- What can family members and friends do to help stop the downward spiral of an alcoholic?
- What positive role can the church play?
- Is it ever necessary to seek professional intervention?
- Does Alcoholics Anonymous really help?
This book will give you the answers. Dying for a Drink also includes a powerful appendix worth ten times the price of the book: it is a letter from an alcohol grandfather to his ten grandchildren, explaining the dangers and effects of alcohol, and how the children of alcoholics are often highly susceptible to becoming alcoholics themselves.
