OMG this is so messed up!!
A child in England is being treated for alcoholism after being given alcohol regularly for six months.
Said Nicolay Sorensen, a spokesman for Alcohol Concern:
"To be diagnosed alcoholic, it's possible this child would have shown a physical dependency. They would have had to ingest enough to cause withdrawal symptoms. Whatever the circumstances, it is a truly horrifying case and raises very serious child protection issues."
This child wasn’t the first — it was one of 13 children who were diagnosed alcoholic by the Heart of England NHS Trust between 2008 and 2010. During that same time period, 106 teens between 13 and 16 were also treated.
This is sick! If you have kids you need to LOCK up your alcohol!
