While this may seem dramatic to some, this is true alcoholism in a young man. Ryan has insights about his addiction that are astonishing and enlightening and it's of the utmost importance that films and images like this get further out into our society so such addictions, which are far more common than we may want to admit, can be helped earlier. I'm encouraged that Nat'l Geo documented this because it's of a young man who has "just" abused alcohol, not heroin or meth, and yet has body has already been wrecked by the physical (not to mention mental) effects. Ryan is a highly likable, relatable guy who might remind many of us of people we have known and loved. Whether you know about alcoholism or are trying to learn about it, this is an excellent program.
