The liberals didn't name alcholism a disease. The American Medical Association did. In 1956. Alcoholism is a chronic and progressive disease. And it has been clinically shown that the body of an alcoholic metabolizes alcohol differently than a non alcoholic. It affects their thinking, their body processes. What makes a person alcoholic is not how much they drink, but what happens when they consume alcohol. There is help out there for those who seek it and often live full, healthy and normal lives in recovery. To blame alcoholism on liberals is absurd.
