    TAREQ HASAN Year ago +3

    For relief from alcoholism, alcoholic need social support and motivation for this kind of the bad habit.This person must be aware of the physical and mental condition. This treatment possible when alcoholic accepts that the problem exists and try to solve it.Too much drinking create body and this is a problematic situation who need to lead a healthy life.
