Willpower is not a cure for addiction to alcohol.

Many people think that what the addict needs is greater self-control which is wrong because relying on willpower alone never seems to work.

They say you can get rid of one addiction by using willpower but you will be vulnerable to relapse or to new compulsive behaviors until you make  changes in yourself instead of attacking the symptoms of your problems.
