What Causes Alcoholism?
The range of theories proposed to explain why certain people develop problems with alcohol is extensive. Although there’s some evidence to support certain facets of these ideas, their impact is negligible: there is absolutely no evidence to suggest a predeterminate for alcoholism. By dispelling the myths surrounding alcoholism, this chapter will free you of all negative indoctrination.
To ascertain the underlying beliefs and influences that underpin destructive drinking is important. Far too often people subscribe to negative beliefs such as ‘I’ve got an addictive personality’ or ‘I suffer from the illness of alcoholism,’ without realizing the dire consequences.
Beliefs are powerful; they shape our lives. By identifying with these beliefs, you are inadvertently ushering yourself into a mind-set of powerlessness: I am ill or diseased, therefore I have no choice but to drink; it’s an affliction. What rubbish! Internalizing negative ideas can, and often does, lead to self-fulfilling prophecy.
Believe it and you’ll achieve it
Your mind will always attempt to actualize what you continually impress upon it. So stop convincing yourself that you’re diseased, ill or have an addictive personality, and start convincing yourself that you’re a limitless bundle of potential, capable of attaining anything you desire.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

To address the root problem one has to transform their world into a place that is alluring and purposeful, thereby removing the need to escape. The answer to alcoholism lies in educating and cultivating the mind so it recognises life as a journey of limitless possibilities.
