Question: Can alcohol destroy your mind?

Alcohol-induced psychosis is an inevitable result of chronic alcoholism, if the alcoholic lives that long. There are a variety of other mental and emotional problems that show up much earlier.

As to total destruction: we should be so lucky! Alcoholism and addiction are diseases that destroy our families, social standing, self respect and health, but then leave us alive for an indefinite period to enjoy it.

  1. this is very well said.

    In our acitive alcoholism, we mess up our lives and the lives of others. Only to sober up and fee the pain of what we caused or contributed to. So feeling remorse, we drink again and cause more damage.

    This is the cylce of destruction of the alcoholic.

    Ciao.
