These are all signs that should should be looked out for if one has a feeling that someone they know may be an alcoholic. If these apply to someone you know, please do not ignore them. It is manditory that they get help immediately. There are too many twelve step programs, rehab centers, and hotlines for one not to be able to get the help they need. If they feel they do not have a problem yet you know they do, there is a way to seek them help without them being aware. I work for A&E and we provide help for these types of situations through a television show called A&E Intervention. This show demonstrates to the world how difficult drug addictions, alcohol addictions, eating disorders, or anything of that sort can be. A team of highly qualified specialists are provided to assist the individual with all of the help that is needed. The individual comes on the show thinking they are filming for a documentary about their issues. What they do not know is that they have been set up by loved ones to overcome their problem. New episodes of A&E Intervention air on A&E every Monday at 9PM/8C so be sure to watch it. Clips and additional footage can be seen on
