What Is Alcoholism?

Alcoholism, also known as “alcohol dependence and alcohol addiction” is a disease that that has as its base, four definitive symptoms:

a.   Craving: An intense desire or compulsion to drink alcohol.
b.   Loss of control: The inability to manage one’s drinking alcohol on any given occasion.
c.   Physical dependence: Alcohol withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety, occur when alcohol use is stopped after a period of heavy drinking.
d.   Tolerance: The need to drink greater amounts of alcohol in order to experience the same effect

Yes, alcoholism is a disease. This has been established by the American Meidcal Association. The craving that an alcoholic feels for alcohol can be as strong as the need for food or water. An alcoholic will continue to drink despite serious family, health, financial or legal consequences.

Like many other diseases, alcoholism is chronic, meaning that it lasts a person's lifetime; it usually follows a predictable course; and it has symptoms. The risk for developing alcoholism, alcohol dependence or alcohol addiction is influenced by genetics, environment and lifestyle.

Take Your Life Back from Your Addiction with Hamilton Alcohol Treatment

While you may be able to rationalize your drinking or feel that you are just a social drinker that that does not mean that you do not have an issue with alcohol. There are a few things that you should know about alcohol addiction.

The Signs of Alcohol Addiction

The Definition of Alcohol Abuse

Alcoholism, alcohol addiction and alcohol dependence are basically the same type of alcohol problem. Alcohol abuse, however, is different than these three. Alcohol abuse is when someone drinks too much alcohol at a given time, such as in a social setting. This individual is not necessarily an alcoholic or addicted to alcohol. While not as detrimental as alcoholism, alcohol abuse may lead to drunk-driving arrests or accidents, drinking-related medical conditions and an inability to handle one's home, work or school responsibilities. Alcohol abuse should be taken extremely seriously.
