Addiction to vodka, or any kind of alcohol, is a serious condition. It is known the "great destroyer" as it affects not only the addict, but the lives of their family and friends too. However, as frightening it is to admit you have a problem, rehabilitation and recovery can seem even more terrifying. Vodka, like all alcoholic beverages, creates an addiction in both the mind and the body. Not only will the addict have to suffer intense physical withdrawal, but their mind will also be affected without the heavy sedating properties of daily doses of alcohol. As bleak as it seems, continuing to drink is much worse that the rehabilitation process. Be honest with yourself. If any of the following statements apply to you, it is time to seek help before your problem gets out of control. There is a life beyond vodka addiction - all you have to do is want it enough.
