How does a gin and tonic compare with heroin? What about beer, our favorite brands like corona, miller, and bud lite? Meth next to bourbon or whiskey?

Alcoholism causes more people to seek out rehab than meth, heroin, or any other illicit substance. It’s time that we recognize how serious a drinking problem can get.
When addiction creeps into our lives, we can get into a lot of trouble. It’s important to recognize when we need help, and seek treatment.
