Alcoholism Myths and Realities by addiction expert Doug Thorburn is a thorough examination of more than 100 widespread myths about alcoholism. Commonly accepted beliefs such as "proper parenting and involvement prevent alcoholism," "alcoholics lack willpower" and a key tenet, "alcoholism is a loss of control over use," are dispelled, serving to eliminate the stigma of addiction. Alcoholism is redefined in a way that allows observers to identify the disease far earlier in its progression than previously possible, without shame or guilt. Specific attention is paid to defining and understanding alcoholism, including guidelines on identifying symptoms of addiction in social and business settings and detailed information on the biological differences between the early and latter stages of the disease.
