There are many who suffer from alcoholism but do not realize that they have a problem. This helpful guide is intended to display some of the symptoms of this devastating disease.
I hope it will help to clear up any questions you may have as to when to consider someone an alcoholic and also importantly, when not to.
If you find that the points made in this article fit you, or a loved one, it may be time to reach out for help. Okay, so let's introduce you to some common alcohol abuse symptoms.
- In a number of cases, one of the alcohol abuse symptoms results in complications at work or even at school. Poor performance, absences, tardiness, and behavioural problems may all be exhibited.
- Last but not least, the problems that surround the heavy consumption of alcohol on a regular basis may result in problems with relatives and even friends. They may become angry when asked about their habit and others may even become violent.
In some cases, an alcoholic may start to hang out with other alcoholics and isolate themselves from loved ones. I remember thinking to myself many years ago ‘how is it I know so many people with a drinking problem?’ Well of course it’s not that hard to understand, as someone once said “water always finds its own level!”
Alcoholism is a complicated and dangerous condition but for as long as there is still life then there is hope for recovery. It takes a desire to seek a better life and an acknowledgement that there is a problem in the first place.
If you recognize your own or someone else’s behaviour in the above alcohol abuse symptoms, it may be time to reach out for a little assistance. There is help out there but I’m afraid you have to ask for it.
