There is an organization fighting alcohol abuse, after all, and there is a name for the disability that comes from the use of alcohol, after all. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism is surely a wonderful organization. Alcohol Use Disorder, or alcoholism, is the term that applies to using alcohol to the point that it becomes a problem.
I guess that falls short of labeling alcoholism as a disability, but it is close. I do still think we should address alcoholism more in terms of it being a disability. And, I wonder at our count of deaths. I read how nearly 4 percent of all deaths are related to alcohol. I guess, I had thought it would be greater, if all things were included, but it is great to have some kind of figure. That is still about one in every 25 deaths.
