Symptoms And Warning

Do You Want To Get Rid Of Alcohol?

You might have heard of alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence or alcoholism. Maybe you know the new term doctors use, “alcohol use disorder.

 Here are basic warning signs

You may have an alcohol use disorder if you:


a) You tried to cut back or stop more than once, and you couldn’t do it.


b) Spend a lot of time drinking or hangover.


c) You want alcohol so badly you can’t think of anything else.


d) You cannot focus on work, school, or family because of your habit.


e) Keep drinking even though it has caused problems for your health or your relations.


f) Trying to be lazy for the activities that are important to you to drink.


g) Have found yourself in situations afterward that made you more likely to get hurt.


h) Addicted to alcohol even though it made you depressed or anxious, hurt your health, or led to a memory blackout.


i) Do you drink more than you used to do?


j) Trouble in sleeping, shakiness, restlessness, nausea, sweating, a racing heart, a seizure, or seeing, hearing, or feeling things that aren’t there.


If you’ve had two or three of those symptoms in the previous year, that’s a mild alcohol use disorder. It’s a moderate disorder if you’ve had four to five. If you had six or more, that’s severe.


Overcoming drug and alcohol addiction is one of the most difficult challenges you will ever face, but you don’t have to face it alone.
