What is a Real Alcoholic? Or better yet, why can some people seemingly easily stop drinking and others seem unable to?
Understanding what a real alcoholic is may help answer this Q for you.
In this video I share what a real alcoholic is (according to my understanding of the 12 step literature), what you need if you are a real alcoholic who wants to stop drinking, and I share an (embarrassing) story from my last month of drinking back in 2009.
Would love to hear from you in the comments, and if you’re sober too, share your sobriety date 🙂 Mine is September 29, 2009.

Drug rehabilitation (often drug rehab or just rehab) is the processes of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment for dependency on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, and street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or amphetamines. The general intent is to enable the patient to confront substance dependence, if present, and cease substance abuse to avoid the psychological, legal, financial, social, and physical consequences that can be caused, especially by extreme abuse. Treatment includes medication for depression or other disorders, counseling by experts and sharing of experience with other addicts

What is wet brain syndrome? You may know someone who drinks a lot and they display some worrying symptoms.
Eyeballs shifting abnormally as though he/she has absolutely no control over them.
Intense muscle trembling.
Disarray and confusion.
Murmuring about stuff that is obviously a pure invention of his mind.
This is not a man or woman who has had a cheeky glass of wine too many the evening before. You are observing a full-blown alcoholic who is most likely experiencing wet brain syndrome.

Does Rehab Work? It can. The statistics show a relatively low rate of success for rehab treatment facilities. But like many things, it is all relative to what people are expecting to get out of it. What you do with the experience and time you gained in rehab is up to you.
No one is magically healed simply by attending rehab but if you employ the tactics/coping strategies and daily habits that they try to instill in you then it most definitely can be very successful. A lot of people are there for the wrong reasons or simply do not want to be there yet. It does take work on a daily basis and that is not a reflection on a facility.
If I were to remain successful then I can honestly attribute most of my success to the fresh beginning I got there.
This channel was designed to follow my journey after I discovered how to stop drinking and successfully stay sober each day. Since then I have learned the value of community as I reach out to help and reach out for help and encourage others to quit drinking and stop drug use. After coming out of rehab many guys from the rehabilitation center have already relapsed but yet immediately jumped back on the sober life. We encourage each other and continue to try and spread the message and help others figure out how to stop drinking and stop alcohol abuse and chemical dependence. Other guys have been helping by sharing their own stories of experience strength and hope and how their life after addiction has changed them. Some are overcoming legal and health problems. The simple point is that if we do not do what we can to make an impact and try to stop drinking and slow down addiction than it will continue to lead to arrests and deaths. The opiate, opioid, heroin and other drug epidemics are claiming lives both of the addicts themselves and the destruction of those around them. I am glad that I learned how to stop alcohol abuse and hopefully will continue to stay sober and live a happy and healthy life in sobriety. My friends and are are very passionate about heloing others so that they do not have to go down the same roads as we have in our addictions and abuse. Together we can learn how to stop drinking alcohol and continue to stay sober. Passing on the message of alcoholism and getting sober is important to our own sobriety. Welcome to daily recovery.
