Alcohol dependence comes with many costs including the damage caused to relationships, families, work and physical health.

Motivation in quitting an addiction is a very powerful force that you need to harness. For some people, the motivation comes from internal emotions and places. This can be anything from hurting someone too many times to desires to improve mental wellbeing.
For others, however, harnessing the power of physical motivators works better.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans spend about 1 percent of their gross annual income on alcohol. For the average household, that’s $565 a year. But if you’re here on our site you’re probably spending much more than that.
