Alcoholism in a Shot Glass pdf free download. The use and abuse of mood altering substances is a ubiquitous concomitant of human life. Yet times change and the ways and extent to which a culture uses such mood changers including alcohol also change. There have been some attitudinal changes in the American, and Western industrial, attitude toward alcohol during the past five years and I have striven to reflect these changes in this Second Edition of An Introduction to Alcoholism Counseling: A Bio-Psycho-Social Approach. The growing social disapproval of heavy drinking and of drunkenness has simultaneously and paradoxically deepened alcoholic shame, guilt, and denial and made recovery from alcoholism easier. The growing acceptance of alcoholism as a disease in the popular mind, at a time of growing scientific criticism of the disease concept, has made for conceptual confusion, but has probably also made it easier to recover. So the counselor works in a different climate, a climate that in some ways facilitates his or her work and in other ways impedes it. There has also been an explosion of research on alcoholism, an explosion so voluminous and so complex that its assimilation and evaluation is extremely difficult.
