Is alcoholism a disease?

Over the past few decades many debates have formed around the issue of is alcoholism a disease? It is apparent that alcoholism is a problem for many people, prescribed treatments as well as rehabilitation exercises have been necessary for many people suffering from alcoholism in the past. Some people consider it a disease. Some people refer to it as a disease. It is an obvious problem, however is it a disease ? It is often referred to as a family disease , that is hereditary . A surveyed poll from Addiction info.com , showed that 90% of people referred to the problem of alcoholism as a disease. Which is most practical , suggested, practiced, is what is most socially acceptable in society, most people see this as a disease .Then plain and simple with a lack of scientific knowledge or words to express ideas, some people call it a genetic disease, and often offer little scientific information to back that up. As said before it is all how it is referred to as and accepted. Words are for the world not the individual . The individual can chose a word to express an idea or feeling, however it is the rest of the world , or the presence of another that word is meant for . Personal feelings have no need for words, just to live them. When sharing those feelings then you need words. Most people seem to believe alcoholism is a disease but many people who have a drinking problem may not consider them selves suffering from alcoholism at all. It is like being colored blind. The other side is that alcoholism should not be referred to as a disease. One of the reasons people believe it should not be referred to as a disease because it is believed to be a choice , and not a disease, again, it is a choice of words, but both have almost entirely different meanings. A choice is an opposite of a disease , expressing alcoholism as a choice suggests that those people believe you can chose to become addicted , with or without the intent to do so , as opposed to a biological predator, or element that attacks the human being without his consent , willing or non-willing to comply. Others ,or more of the same crowd but on a different day , argue that is should not be considered a disease because it is curable , rather than an incurable and progressive problem , which has roots in childhood. Again, as said before one of leading arguments is why it is referred to as a disease, and how the world accepts the term, some believe it should not be referred to as a disease , but is referred to as a disease simply so that the world, and those suffering from it can better understand it. Even when discovering a world full of science, logic, opinion, fact remains that there is no right answer. Words do not show a full understanding of what and why. Time coincides in layers over the sum of all the parts of the fabrication of the universe. What words we chose are the words we use. Words mean nothing when they are meant to mean something. Absolute is not even time itself. Man kind will die out, trees will never be trees, air was never air. We try to label , organize because we are a society , .we can construct, idea with words. One group believes that it is a disease and the other does not. Neither is correct nor wrong. Both are more similar than they think their selves to be. Both select groups use words to express to the world what they feel most acceptable. How we may refer to this as a disease or not decides how they will approach the problem . A word forms a path to travel and the world forms tight walls to the sides of that path, those Walls can often alter the path you can travel, curving, or suggesting new direction to your path . We chose that path however , but above there is no ceiling , the true nature of what we try to express is imperfect beings is infinite. We will never learn all there is to know about the universe because such science is even beyond words . Perfection does not exist. No one is right or wrong. Only with bias can you say someone is right or wrong, but that is an imperfection, a weakness. You limit yourself if you can not learn from both sides being considered., if you can not allow it. Wars, violence, argument, are all primitive , words are for apes , when they shall evolve. Humans are primitive, self deluding animals. Emotions are natural , apes are in fact more evolved than humans with expression, they understand true emotion , they react with true emotion . No fighting, or confusion, disagreement, words . Man-kind thinks that it is so very smart , but in fact this primitive race is only destroying itself, as well as the whole planet. In relativity , no one is correct, how we chose our words is how we choose to react , it Is how we chose to share with society, it is how we wish to be viewed, arrogance, stupidity Is something that will never change with the dependence on these words we have created, the student of this paper will not allow for one moment the primitive nature of man kind to spoil his opportunity to learn as most of from this as possible. He is choosing to be open minded. An open mind is the key to the universe. Bias is why your neighbor’s children starve, why your brother dies at war, it is the sin of the earth, the greed of your right to live. Your selfish imperfection. Both sides are as right as they are wrong, and can not exist without one another , and the imperfection and arrogance of human beings. Never will be even come remotely close to understanding the true nature of anything. How society views you is their choice, we have divides, different opinions. One day man kind will be gone, most likely self destroyed and on that day when they know nothing, they will know the most important thing of all. The Earth shall finally be almost perfect.

Anyways , Im just babbling, thought I would share though.Be back in a bit getting some to eat, buying school supplies.

Looks a like a good paper. I'd add in research quotes to support your position though.

If anyone wants to see my model representation of change, paradox, just ask. Man kind will destroy itself if of course other forces do not step in 1st. You can not go back in time

The language seems unnatural and you've articulated yourself in an odd way - I can't quite put my finger on it, but your sentences seem .. odd. You use a lotta words to make a point that could be made a lot easier; meaning you take long to make your point, and you have a tendency to digress. Yeah, in fact, you digress way too much. It started out with the question 'is alcoholism a hereditary?' (I wouldn't call it a 'disease'), but then you make all sorts of unrelated ramblings about nature and society; I mean, fine, you could include a short reasoning of why someone claims it is/isn't hereditary, but it seems you're just attempting to make a point through random philosophical ramblings (which is fine if the subject/topic allows for it, but when you open up with a concrete question debating alcoholism I see it as pretty unfitting).

If anyone wants to see my model representation of change, paradox, just ask. Man kind will destroy itself if of course other forces do not step in 1st. You can not go back in time

No offence, but that statement doesn't really make sense. It's self-explanatory that if no other forces step in first mankind will destroy itself, because, well, as you said, no other forces are to step in.

ya, i kinda have to agree with showdown here, you repeated yourself like four or five times to say the same thing, over and over again... lol, sorry had to do that. Anyway, i know a college prof. would probably say its not the best work he or she has seen, but the true point that you are trying to get across is noble.
