Think Before You Drink
The negitive affects of alcohol abuse
If you are having trouble with a family member thats is diagnosed with alcoholism or even you are trying your best to overcome the difficulties of being an alcoholic there are "support groups" out there for you and also to help you. Some support groups for alcohol abuse are Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). This support group is a group that helps people who had past or present drinking problems. Members help each other by talking about why they decided to abuse alcohol and how they can help them selves. Another support group is Al-Anon, which is a group that helps friends and families of alcoholics. One last support group is Alateen. I think this support group stands out the most because this group helps teens and children of alcoholics by teaching them that they did not cause their parents alcoholism and that they can not cure their parents problem.
The top five states with the highest number of alcohol-related deaths are Texas, Florida, Illinois, California and Pennsylvania.
