    If one is living with an addict the best thing to do is to get help for yourself and the dynamics will shift.
    Living with an addict can be hell.
    Trying to change them isn’t effective.
    Work on yourself and you’ll get the strength you need to deal with the challenges addiction brings.

    Alcohol is a controlled substance. Unfortunately, most people in Chabad (adults and teens alike) don’t understand the damage alcohol does to the body.Alcoholism is a real thing.
    Please create more symposiums and lectures about this crucial topic in order to educate our children about it.
    Professionals should go into our schools and show kids what alcohol does to the body and to their mental wellbeing

    Addiciton to alcohol is like any other addiction and should be treated as such.
    Getting plastered weekly isn’t chassidish.
    At least not Chabad Chassidus.

    Mesivta and Zal staff still think it’s ok to encourage underage drinking. The failure in our school system is 50% there and 50% lack of quality education. If R’ Jacobson can’t get they to the people in charge, he’s missing the boat.

    What about s** and lust addiction? Why is this not being addressed?

    Not just talking about addiction

    Rabbi Jacobson isn’t just talking about alcohol addicts. He’s referring to the general misconceptions around alcohol – which may be considered okay in the “normal” terms.

    The only thing – When a Rabbi gives a talk about this, he should show some natural Joy.. I’m tempted to offer him a L’chaim or two…
