Recognizing the Signs of Alcohol Abuse or Alcoholism
There are many signs and stages of alcoholism that are indicators of alcohol abuse or addiction. In order to help an individual recover successfully in alcohol rehab, it is important to read these signs.
Signs of alcohol abuse include:
- Using alcohol to cope with emotional feelings. When alcohol is used to “relax” and relieve stress. Sometimes it will go to the extreme where the person will binge drink daily and use excuses that they’re “stressed” or “had a bad day.”
- Alcohol is leading to legal consequences. When alcohol abuse is present, legal consequences come in a matter of time. The individual will place themselves in harmful situations including: drinking and driving, getting into fights while drunk, etc.
- Alcohol begins to consume daily life responsibilities. When work days are missed from being hung-over, or the individual is showing up to work still drunk from the night before, alcohol abuse is probably the factor.
- Relationship problems begin to arise. When an individual is drinking excessively and relationships with family members, spouses, and friends become a continuous issue.
Signs of alcoholism include:
- Building up a tolerance. In order to feel a buzz, individuals will need to drink a certain amount of drinks. As tolerance builds, individuals will need a higher volume of alcohol in order to obtain the same feeling.
- Loss of control. The individual no longer has control over their drinking habits, drinking more and more and not necessarily wanting to, but needing to.
- Withdrawal when not using alcohol. When someone drinks large amounts of alcohol and then stops their body can begin to experience withdrawal symptoms.
- Want to stop drinking, but can’t. The drinking has become such a habit and the body has become tolerant to it, that quitting seems impossible.
