Millions of men on the planet are addicted to either alcohol, drugs, or both. If you are struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction please be aware that you are not alone. Most often an addiction begins as a pleasurable experience that may have taken place early in life. The substance seemed harmless and the consequence of using it was enjoyable. With time, however, the man feels a need for either alcohol or drugs and realizes that stopping use is not only difficult but begins to feel impossible.
The alcoholic, once drinking begins, feels literally incapable of stopping. Both drug and alcohol addicts gain tolerance which simply means that they may need more of their substance of choice to achieve the effect they desire. In most cases (not all) men begin to seek help when their substance abuse results in devastating consequences such as; the loss of a partner, job, family relations, & personal well-being, etc.
