Health Problems Related to Alcohol Dependence:

Alcohol dependence can lead to heart related and liver problems. Our liver works extra hard to break down alcohol and remove it from our systems. Too much alcohol consumption can lead to extra burden on the liver and ultimately liver failure. There are also mental health and psychological problems associated with alcohol dependence. Too much consumption can lead to stress, anxiety and feelings of suicide. Relationships get ruined this way and your performance at work can also be affected.

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.
