Thought to be a safe beverage if consumed in limits, it ultimately leads to a chronic disease, alcoholism; also called alcohol addiction!

Addiction to alcohol is confirmed when an individual is not able to manage or control its drinking habits. Alcohol addiction or alcoholism is termed as a chronic health disease and is also a preventable cause of death. However, the sign and symptoms are either ignored or not identified due to lack of awareness. Therefore, a few signs and symptoms that indicate alcohol addiction include:

  • Drinking to relax or feel better
  • Being unable to stop once you start
  • Lying about or hiding you are drinking
  • Drinking during work hours or while driving
  • Blacking out
  • Neglecting work or household responsibilities

To conclude, if you find anybody who is suffering from alcoholism, please help them identify the problem and immediately consult a healthcare specialist for a correct and timely treatment. After all, alcohol can be managed through therapy and support from family and friends.
