Can anyone explain to me why Alcoholism is labeled a "Disease"
And not a "physical addiction"
Hope i posted this in the right place

Because it goes much deeper than physical dependence. Like smoking it acts as a screen against painful emotions and experiences. As a qualified and experienced counsellor and hypnotherapist I have to do a lot of work with people with these behaviours to deal with the underlying causes to enable any change to be permanent rather than just change substances or behaviours.

The only reason I can think of is that there's a genetic link that can be passed down from generation to generation, kind of like a cancer. So if you happen to "trigger" that genetic, it's beyond a good deal of what you can mentally get past... confused
