Writers Who Died of Alcoholism

8,989 views 12 items
This is a list of famous writers who died of alcoholism. While we may be more accustomed to writers dying to heroin and other drugs, plenty have died due to an addiction to alcohol. Alcoholism is more than simply a lack of self control. Today, it is considered an all out addictive disorder. In other words, it's not a bad habit-- it's a disease. Fortunately, alcohol abuse is a treatable disease and many addictions have been broken. While harder drugs may take more of the spotlight, alcohol dependence is a serious syndrome as alcohol has the potential to damage every organ in the body, including the brain, which can lead to other psychiatric disorders.
