What is alcohol addiction?
Alcohol addiction can be managed so that the afflicted can learn to lead a normal, happy, and useful life, free of alcohol dependence. Alcoholism is often described as a disease because it is progressive, chronic, and, if left untreated, ultimately fatal. Because it’s a legal substance, alcohol is consumed all over the world. We see people consuming it at parties, at ball games, and in all media platforms. We are inundated with advertisements for alcoholic beverages in commercials and magazines. Alcohol addiction can go unnoticed for a long period of time because it is so readily available and its consumption socially acceptable. When we pick up on addiction in ourselves or in friends and family, it’s because the consumption and consistent use has demonstrably progressed far beyond the individual’s control.
When we realize that we or someone we love has an addiction to alcohol, it’s because they can no longer function without it. Drinking takes precedence over everything else and becomes the central focus of our life. As our life begins to unravel with neglect towards work, our relationships, and our personal responsibilities, we begin to see that it is having a supremely negative impact on our well-being. When we understand this and try to stop or moderate but find we cannot, we realize we may be addicted.
