Veronica Valli & I (3) Psychological vs physical alcohol addiction

So as promised Veronica &  I got together on Skype for another chat which we both love as we learn from each other.   We hope that you also value us sharing our conversations? Please do let us know what you think 🙂

Today we discuss the question posed by Lori to explain further what is meant by, and our understanding of, psychological vs physical alcohol dependence and addiction.  It is longer than our other conversations at about 18 minutes but that’s because there is a lot to say and we both had good stuff to share.

Two amendments to what I said: I mixed up want and need having tried to correct myself!  You end up needing to drink, it goes beyond want.  Also I talk about putting an ascitic tap into the stomach but technically it goes into the peritoneal cavity, so the abdomen.

If anyone else has a question for us please do drop me an email, contact Veronica or put it in the comments section below.
