For many people, problems with alcohol and other addictiove substances are caused by the need to relieve some physical or mental anguish in their lives by, literally, altering their state of consciousness. Any euphoria that alcohol provides is very short lived. People with alcohol problems rapidly spiral downwards as the alcohol starts to affect other parts of their lives. Therapy can provide a longer term solution to these underlying issues.
Symptoms and signs of alcohol problems
The first sign that you may have an alcohol addiction is if you find you are drinking daily and are unable to restrict or abstain from your drinking habit despite repeated efforts. You may not drink every day but may go on occasional binges and remain intoxicated for two or more days. Both scenarios indicate a dependence on alcohol.
The side effects of alcohol abuse lead to occupational problems, quarrels with family members, sometimes violence when intoxicated, or a negative im[act on yur performance at work.
