I have an uncle who has been an alcoholic for as long as I can remember, I think he has been an alcoholic even before I was born. He is much younger than my dad but my uncle looks a lot older because of his alcoholism. He has slowed down a bit now because he hs been feeling the effects of alcohol on his health lately. I think he's on his early 60s now but he now has difficulty of hearing so we have to literally shout as we speak with him. I know that he has done it to himself but I also pity him for his current state right now. He's alone in life without any body to take care of him because his wife left him years ago due to his alcoholism and gambling. This is his story and I hope it will serve as a lesson for everyone to reform as early as you can before you lose everything and everyone you've always cared for.
