Alcohol Support Groups

What are Alcohol Support Groups like?

The 12-step program is the most common and successful of the Alcohol Support Groups.

There are an abundance of web sites and books written about the addiction programs, and we’ll share a few of them with you to give you a broader base of understanding and point you to a few excellence resources.

The 12-Step program is steeped in tradition and firmly supported by spiritual truth, give us all a model of humanity that points us to a better life, a stronger relationship with our neighbors, and an eternal loving relationship with the one who made us.

As you look through Alcohol Support Groups, think of them as a process. Like a path you walk on to go from A to Z, only you must take all of the steps and go through each in order, otherwise the path does not lead to your final destination. You go at your own pace and move forward as you see fit.

Along the way, remember that these steps were written by people just like you, who needed help and had the courage to accept the help. Regardless of your addiction, 12-Step offers improvement for the human condition.Enjoy your reading.

Maybe you like Rev. Buchman and Bill Wilson will go through a spiritual experience of your own. If you do, please share it with us.

Alcohol Support Groups ARE 12-Step Programs

Please review each step and try to either begin following them yourself or enroll in a local program. Let’s take a look at the steps. You will see quickly that the process includes others and that we are not meant to go through this alone.

My drinking causes me to be depressed and I’m thinking of suicide.

Those feelings are a by-product of drinking and addiction. Once the substance has nestled itself in the brain, our ability to reason, our ability to choose, our ability to even feel emotion, is impaired. What you may be experiencing as depression is drug induced. Suicide is not the answer.

A person gripped by alcohol addiction cares nothing about his/per personal health and well being, they care about the drug, they care a drinking and nothing else matters.

If they are concerned, or frightened by their condition, they may not be able to properly think through the situation for themselves. The drug has impeded everything. The help available is not considered. The choice of suicide is a terrible tragedy, leaving behind despair for those who love and care for the addict.

Get help! Go to your doctor and tell him/her the truth about what you are experiencing. What you think is reality may not be reality at all, so give yourself a chance. Allow yourself to receive help. There is hope. There is always hope.

If you are a friend or family member and observing this “depression” we encourage you to seek advice from an addiction therapist. Frequently an intervention is necessary to help the addicted person get the help he/she needs. The fog of addiction prevents an otherwise obvious and intelligent decision to get help. Take the lead and make something happen.

Statistics show that 50% of all suicide attempts involved drugs or alcohol and that 25% of successful suicides were among drug and alcohol abusers. This is especially true of users under 30 years of age.

For young people 15-24, it’s the third leading cause of death. Even for children 5-14, it’s the fifth leading cause of death. Of the teens who commit suicide, 50% of them were drug or alcohol users.

Suicide is not a good choice. It is the wrong solution to a preventable problem. People are too precious to lose. There is help and there is hope. For more Alcohol Support Groups Questions please click


and Finally Remember:

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
