The Florala News - Thursday, December 9, h) Jean Shearer, Associate Director South Central Ala. bama Regional Council on Alcoholism A major stumbling block in our efforts to reach out to help the woman alcoholic is the mistaken idea we have about x~hat an alcoholic is, particu- larly a woman alcoholic. Rccc, ntly, 1 saw a movie entitled, "The Secret Love of San(ira Blaine," which brough~ this fact home to me. In the movie, Sandra's secret love is a bottle, but the opening scene is deceiving. The scene is a cocktail party ~Htd Ihc camera focuses on a cor~ct:rned husband who is ~hi,q~cring to friends that he cannot find his wife. Almost immediately a door bursts olx'n and in staggers an obviously' drunk woman in her tim',its. As her husband m~c~ toward her, she knocks him out of the way and loudly demands another drink. While hc trio,, to protect, she picks up a drink, lifts it to her lips, takc~ l~o faltering steps ~t ~ ~l~t ,oou ~m cuAwt ~UN. r~ N.~L Dff..12-13-/q where you can't tell ~ mortals from the machines... even when you look in fl~e mirror! pE]~r_R FTJNE~A - 1:3LYTHE [3ANNE~ "rt JTLJI~EWE}R LD" A~q}'IUI~ HILL Pi. ~: YtJL flKIYNNE~ forward and falls flat on her face in front of the whole group. My immediate reaction was, "Well, there's poor Sandra; she's an alcoholic." She certainly fitted the usual idea one has of the female alcoholic. She was loud and boisterous. She was wearing a revealing dress and too much make-up. But 1 was deceived, as we are many times deceived by the stereotype we associate with the alcoholic woman. After this scene, this woman is never shown again. The camera then focuses on an attractive, modestly dressed young mother who has only one drink at the party and leaves early to go home to see about her two young children. After seeing that her children are safely tucked in bed, she proceeds to her kitchen, opens the cabinet, pours herself a stiff drink, and relaxes in the privacy of her own home, alone. This young mother is Sandra -- she is the alcoholic. The movie follows her progressive deterioration through the loss of her husbandand finally her children. This opening scene presents dramatically a major problem we face in our effort to reach women alcoholics, Because of the stereotype we have of the woman who drinks too much, we fail many times to identify problem drinking and alcoholism among those we know and love until the disease is in its rmal stages and the losses are great. We fail to identify the problem because when we think of women alcoholics, we look for loud, brassy, flashy, bar drinking, "loose women." Suppose you have a friend whom, you feel. may "drink a little too much." "But my friend," you will say, "Couldn't be an alcoholic -- she's a devoted mother." Or "she's so talented." ,Or "she's so pretty." Or "she s a lady." "Maybe," you will say, "she drinks a little too much, but she just has lots of problems. She'll be okay." The problem is that she Task Force on Alcoholism, which is being spearheaded by the South Central Alabama Regional Council on Alcoho- lism, is to make the public aware of women like Sandra Blaine, who are alcoholic and need help.

Progress Report On Florala Entertainers Those of you who have been keeping up with the progress of Florala entertainers, the team of Corbin and Gibson, will be interested in knowing they have been scheduled to perform at the Salisbury Fair in Columbus, Georgia. This popular duo now has to be scheduled five months in advance. The Salisbury Fair is an annual event sponsored by the "Historic Columbus Founda- tion." Mrs. Polly Miller, enter- tainment chairman, went all out to obtain the services of this local team - Tom says, "They made an offer we could not refuse - a guarantee, plus a percentage of the gross." Silky Corbin will give (7) seven performances - (1) one Friday night, April 29; (3) three shows daily Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1. This act will be performing several times throughout the Holiday season around the area - mostly Christmas shows for the children. As of now, the next local date is February 1, when they will perform for the Retired Teachers of Covington County, when they meet in Florala, Tri-City C. B.

I'm a lady." Also, because of this stereotype, the woman alco- holic will very carefully and very systematically hide her drinking from everyone as long as possible. Even if she knows she is in trouble with alcohol she can't tell anyone because, "'What will people think?" And the end result for her, just as it is for Sandra Blaine in the movie, can well be that she loses everything near and dear to her, even her own life. Yet, this loss is needless. Alcoholism is a treatable disease; it can be recognized and arrested in its early stages before it takes its toll both on the alcoholic and her family.
