What Is Alcohol Addiction?

Also known as alcoholism, alcohol addiction is a severe form of problematic drinking. The term describes the intense, often uncontrollable, desire to drink, which is frequently combined with physical dependency. Here, the body becomes accustomed to the presence of alcohol in its systems that alters its life-giving process.

As the body becomes reliant on alcohol, withdrawal is often experienced when alcohol consumption stops abruptly. Withdrawal can be somewhat unpleasant and causes many to relapse.

Alcohol addiction is a severe problem that affects millions of Americans throughout their lives. For this very reason, it is essential to attend an alcohol rehab for professional treatment.                   

Causes of Alcohol Addiction

Experts have pinpointed several factors that see an individual more prone to developing an alcohol addiction throughout their lifetime. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Economic factors
  • Life history
  • Childhood stress and trauma
  • Social factors such as sex and race
  • Genetic predispositions
  • Mental health problems
  • Peer pressure

Signs of Alcohol Addiction

Unlike illegal drugs such as heroin and cocaine, alcohol can be purchased legally by anyone of the age of twenty-one. It is often widely consumed in safe and non-pathological ways. However, when regularly consumed, alcohol has the potential to give way to dangerous addictions.

Distinguishing whether an alcohol addiction is present in your or a loved one's life can be difficult. However, several signs essentially determine whether an addiction is present. These include:

  • Intense cravings for alcohol
  • Drinking in private
  • Hiding drinking habits from your friends and family
  • Inability to retain information when under the influence
  • Experiencing mood swings when confronted about your drinking
  • Joking about having an alcohol addiction
  • Feeling as though you need alcohol to get through everyday life
  • Struggling to keep up with responsibilities, either at home or in your job
