Alcohol intake isn’t bad in itself; addiction to it is the problem. Alcohol addiction means you are likely to drink beyond okay, and that only endangers your health.
See signs you may be suffering alcohol addiction.
YOUR CONFIDENCE TOTALLY DEPENDS ON IT
When you have to drink a specified quantity of alcohol before engaging in an activity to boost your confidence level, it’s a bad sign and habit that needs to be stopped ASAP. Drinking too much can hurt you.
YOU CAN’T GO A DAY WITHOUT YOUR FAVORITE BRAND
Another telling sign of alcohol addiction is when you drink every other day, not necessarily getting drunk to stupor, but drinking some bottles or maybe one just to enjoy the high it gives.
YOU DON’T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT
People who are normal have a limit of how much they can drink of any brand of alcohol because they know it’s potentially dangerous to drink often. However, for a person who is hooked, there’s absolutely nothing wrong about what they do. It’s just a way of unwinding, and they see it as a quick getaway from stress and pain.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE CONCERNED
Your family and friends wouldn’t be talking to you about your drinking habits if you weren’t doing anything wrong. If they tell you to cut down or stop, or they pick fights with you over it, then it’s a sign something is wrong, and needs to be addressed.
YOU’D RATHER DRINK THAN TAKE CARE OF IMPORTANT ISSUES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
When you have to sneak out of work just to drink a few bottles or you see nothing wrong in postponing important business and issues just so you can attend to your drinking urge, you’re on the edge.
And those are some major signs of an over-drinking person. As stated earlier, drinking isn’t harmful or bad, it’s the abuse that’s a problem. Cut down today.
