A Guide to Alcohol
Alcohol is defined by Webster as "the substance in fermented or distilled drinks that can make one drunk". Alcoholic drinks are enjoyed by millions, but alcohol is also a substance that is abused by many. When used responsibly, alcohol is consumed in small amounts in a social setting. When abused, alcohol causes addiction, accidents, and death.
The best way to avoid alcohol dependence is to only drink responsibly in the first place. However, treatment is available and effective for those whose lives are controlled by alcoholism and who want to be sober.
