LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you're having trouble with a promise to start the New Year with a resolve to quit drinking, Bob Howell, a clinical hypnotherapist, says it's never too late to make the effort again.

He says "About 1 out of 10 Americans suffer from what we consider the disease of addiction or alcoholism. We believe the recovery process occurs over a lifetime but it can begin with a first day of abstinence."

Howell says alcoholism is a treatable disease and that a quick fix is not a quick drink.

The Ranch at Dove Tree is a treatment addiction center in collaboration with the Texas Tech University Center for the Study of Addiction.
