Alcohol Addiction Poems

Poems about Alcoholism

When a friend becomes an alcoholic, you may be left wondering what to do. How can you help this person when it seems that all they care about is drinking. They seem to have left the world behind. What can you do for an alcoholic? Some options are confronting them yourself about entering treatment or even trying to form an intervention of close friends. The truth is that there is nothing you can do to make anyone do anything. One of beliefs in Alcoholics Anonymous is that a person may have to hit rock bottom before they are ready to be treated.
