I just thought I'd share this story of someone I know who has been an alcoholic most of his life. He used to consume alcohol almost everyday especially when he's off from work. Sometimes he would drink beer, other times he would drink hard liquor. Even upon waking up he used to drink alcohol as though it was his breakfast. He has a wife and kids but I guess they haven't done much to stop him of his alcohol consumption. His sons and daughters became alcoholic drinkers themselves and some of them chose to leave home to maybe get away from the kind of life they have. They are considered among the poor families of our community so I guess they had no other choice but to just run away. Now the father is suffering from end-stage liver cancer. They have a family history of the disease but it might have been triggered by his alcoholism. His doctors told him the cancer has already affected most of his system so the only measure they could give him now is palliative care. It is a sad fate that this person has to endure now. Nature took its course on him and I guess there's no more chance of reform.
