What is Alcoholism?
Drinking alcohol at a level that interferes with one’s physical and mental health is known as alcohol dependence or alcoholism.
Alcoholism results from genetic and environmental factors, and it lasts a lifetime because it’s chronic. Alcoholism is characterized by the following symptoms:
- A strong craving for alcohol
- Continued use despite repeated physical, psychological, or interpersonal problems
- The inability to limit drinking
Drinking continues despite health, legal, and/or family problems for an alcoholic. People with addictions, such as alcoholism, suffer from chemical dependency, which makes it impossible for them to change themselves. Willpower alone is not enough for them to overcome their alcohol addiction, unlike alcohol abuse. Alcoholism results in many people losing their homes, family, and jobs as a result of their dependency. Alcoholics can even die as a result of their dependency.
Drinkers develop a tolerance for alcohol over time, which means they need to drink larger quantities to feel the same effects. Whenever people stop drinking, withdrawal symptoms like cravings, anxiety, unsteadiness, headaches, nausea, and irritability begin to appear.
An alcoholic tends to drink more in order to avoid experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
- Lack of self-control to feel drunk, excessive desire to drink more
- There are withdrawal symptoms that result from stopping alcohol consumption, including seizures, fever, agitation, and severe confusion.
- Abusing alcohol can lead to liver and kidney disease.
- Multi-organ failure results.
A few factors have stood out as causes of alcoholism:
- Influence of peers
- on self-confidence
