Is Alcoholism a Disease?

Question by Leah K: Is alcoholism a disease?
Some say it is a disease. It’s the only disease where all you need to do is stop putting a specific substance into your body! My father had a real disease, cancer. Boy I sure wish he could have cured his disease by going to AA meetings and simply not putting a substance into his body.
