While alcohol is legal in the U.S. and most parts of the world, it is still a mind-altering, psychoactive substance that has the ability to ruin lives and families. Although socially acceptable, alcohol misuse frequency results in risky behavior and negative consequences, such as driving while impaired or engaging in domestic violence. In the United States alone, it is estimated that the average person who drives while impaired has done so 80 times before their initial arrest.

Symptoms of Alcoholism

Symptoms of alcohol dependence include the following:

  • Tremors and shaking the morning after drinking
  • Alcohol-induced conditions and illnesses such as liver disease
  • Memory lapses caused by blackouts while drinking
  • The appearance of withdrawal symptoms when drinking stops
  • The appearance of withdrawal symptoms when drinking stops
  • Failure to attend to responsibilities because of alcohol use
  • Inability to control how much one drinks
  • Making excuses to drink

Alcohol abuse is not necessarily alcoholism but nonetheless, is considered to be an alcohol use disorder. Some people who abuse alcohol are able to set and maintain limits on their drinking- but still, these individuals often engage in self-destructive behavior and are a danger to themselves and others. This habit can destroy lives in the short term and has been shown to produce life-threatening health consequences in the long term.

Alcohol Addiction and Overdose

An overdose is possible for someone who reaches a very high blood alcohol concentration – this is called alcohol poisoning.

Alcohol poisoning is a serious and potentially fatal consequence of drinking an excessive amount of alcohol in a brief period of time. Drinking too much too quickly can adversely affect your breathing, heart rate, and body temperature, leading to coma and death.
