Information and support for those affected by alcoholism. If you are concerned about alcohol's effect on your life or a loved one's life, please feel welcome. We have a few simple rules for this subreddit:
Exclusionary language and attitudes are not allowed in /r/alcoholism. Rudeness, insults, and disrespect will not be tolerated. Disagreement and debate and alternative opinions are welcome, but rudeness is never appropriate.
This is a sober space. Please do not post or comment while you are intoxicated. Feel free to come back after you've slept it off.
This subreddit is for people struggling with addiction and working on sobriety. Text posts, link posts, and comments that are not appropriate will be removed. Inappropriate topics include:
- Romanticizing and glorifying intoxicants
- Commercial posts, promoting a specific product or service for sale
Crowdfunding or charity appeals
When commenting, remember that this is a forum for discussion. Comments with a single purpose of linking elsewhere will be removed.
