Example text

That’s a generalization I’ve been brought up with . . ”6 Combining Glassner and Berg’s research with studies of other low-alcoholism cultures, such as Chinese, Greek, Italian, and Spanish, we can extract the following values taught by low-alcoholism cultures and groups: Drinking is accepted but is socially governed, and people are taught to behave within clear boundaries.

That is because addiction results when people’s lives are unbalanced. It cannot be remedied by a pill, just as a pill cannot balance people’s lives. But people, including you, can achieve remission by creating the fundamental building blocks that form nonaddicted lives.
