What is Alcoholism?
Alcoholism is not the same thing as simply drinking a lot. There are many who drink but are not alcoholics. Alcoholism is marked by a loss of control, and the development of physical and mental dependence. An individual with alcoholism may not be able to keep from drinking, even when he or she knows that it will have corrosive effects. For these individuals, complete healing of the mind, body and spirit is needed.
The roots of alcoholism can be complex, and in some cases may involve biological and/or genetic factors. Co-occurring conditions, such as mental health disorders or other forms of addiction, may also be present.
Though dependence is the primary hallmark of alcoholism, there are some additional signs of alcohol addiction that can help diagnose the problem. Here are some red flags to look for, whether in your own life or in a loved one.
- Being unable to quit drinking or control intake
- Needing to drink increasingly high amounts to get the same effect
- Experiencing withdrawal pains when drinking ceases—shakiness, nausea, etc.
- Spending a great deal of time drinking or recovering
- Lying or making excuses to hide drinking from loved ones
- Giving up other activities to focus on drinking
- Continuing to drink even when it does clear damage to health, finances or relationships
