I have been recently coming to terms how alcohol has affected my family and myself.

Took me over 31 years and a conversation through therapy that my dad is an alcoholic and my mom is a codependent, i have the tendency to become an alcoholic as well. I am not sure how many Koreans can admit that to themselves but reading on some statistics doesn’t sound very promising. Can our culture continue to have the same attitudes on alcohol and not address the problem through education and treatment?

I feel sad for myself and my people.
