"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Alcohol abuse and dependence

Good definition:

Alcoholism is a chronic, progressive, and often fatal disease. It is a primary disorder and not a symptom of

Other diseases or emotional problems. The chemistry of alcohol allows it to affect nearly every type of cell in

The body, including those in the central nervous system. After prolonged exposure to alcohol, the brain

Becomes dependent on it. The severity of this disease is influenced by factors such as genetics, psychology,

Culture, and response to physical pain.
