Addiction to Alchohol


Recommended Posts

According to this article https://addictionresource.com/alcohol/treatment/how-to-quit-drinking/ some of the warning signs of dependence on alcoholic drinks are when a person:

- begins to skip exercising

- neglects to eat a healthy diet

- drinks more than anyone in their family or social circle

- cannot have fun without alcohol

- needs a progressively greater number of drinks to feel high

- misses important deadlines at school or work

- does not meet social obligations

- feels uncomfortable at the thought of not having access to alcohol

- often ends up drinking more than intended

- starts drinking in the morning

- starts drinking alone

- relies on alcohol as a form of stress relief

- needs more drinks to feel high

- has escalated the number of drinks since first starting to drink

- suffers blackouts after drinking sessions


I counted 8 out of 15. What do you think, is it serious? How many "points" do you have?

The problem with alcohol addiction is that it is very hard for an addict to distance themselves from it, because it is so normalized in society, on tv there are adverts, lots of shops sell it like super markets, so for an addict there are constant reminders of the thing they crave, so relapsing is inevitable.
