Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol abuse means having unhealthy or dangerous drinking habits, such as drinking every day or drinking too much at a time. Alcohol abuse can harm your relationships, cause you to miss work, and lead to legal problems such as driving while drunk (intoxicated). When you abuse alcohol, you continue to drink even though you know your drinking is causing problems. If you continue to abuse alcohol, it can lead to alcohol dependence. Alcohol dependence is also called alcoholism. You are physically or mentally addicted to alcohol. You have a strong need, or craving, to drink. You feel like you must drink just to get by. You might be dependent on alcohol if you have three or more of the following problems in a year: You cannot quit drinking or control how much you drink. You need to drink more to get the same effect. You have withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking. These include feeling sick to your stomach, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety. You spend a lot of time drinking and recovering from drinking, or you have given up other activities so you can drink. You have tried to quit drinking or to cut back the amount you drink but haven't been able to. You continue to drink even though it harms your relationships and causes physical problems.
