No, it isnt. Thats an excuse.

 

More often than not alcoholics are people with addictive personalities, if it was not alcohol, it would be something else. Would you say people who are criminals have a disease? how about people with social or behavioural problems? they are all in the same bracket. They are not diseases, they are personaloty weaknesses, that they need to address, control and work towards learning to cope with.

 

this is all pretty deep for my first few posts, but its a subject i believe in.

Regardless of whether it's a disease or not, if he's going to die of it, I hope it happens sooner rather than later so he's still got some chance of being remembered with fondness. Not that dragging it out in the media for decades seems to have hurt George Best's legacy much.

Well, i would much rather he pulled himself out of it and lived a normal life, but that doesnt look likely

As I said, if he's going to die of it then etc. I'd also far rather he got over it, but I agree, the signs aren't exactly sparkling.

A lot of doctors regard it as a disease.

Aye you can be psychologically or physiologically addicted to alcohol (or both).

 

Gazza's maybe both and has a lot of mental health issue IMO of which the alcohol consumption is just a symptom.

 

And tbh he's had nothing like the help say Best got in his life over the years.

Just a little post to say that Gazza's sister is a teacher of myn at college.

i asked her a few questions about him...:

i asked if he was still a through and through toon fan and she said ohh yess toon mad

then i asked what he was up to these days and she said hes been over america for a while and hes staying there until he gets his coachin stuff sorted out.

so its nice to see the man finally get his life sorted.

Are you absolutely certain he's not in the rehab place that he goes to in Arizona and the coaching badges line wasn't just a nice cover to tell one of her students?
