Alcohol addiction is a physical dependency on alcohol that occurs gradually as drinking alcohol alters the balance of some chemicals in your brain, such as gamma-amino butyric acid which inhibits impulsiveness, and glutamate which excites the nervous system. Alcohol also raises the levels of dopamine in the brain which is associated with the pleasurable aspects of drinking alcohol. Excessive, long-term drinking can deplete or increase the levels of some of these chemicals causing your body to crave alcohol to restore good feelings or to avoid negative feelings.
Excessive alcohol can lead to health problems including:
• liver cirrhosis
• heart failure
• damage to the brain and nervous system
Associated with alcohol dependency is the damage to relationships, finances, employment, and problems with the law.
Signs of alcohol dependency or addiction:
• an uncontrollable urge to drink alcohol
• consuming more alcohol to obtain the same results
• withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, sweating, and anxiety when
you reduce or stop drinking
• incur black-outs or memory loss
• hide your drinking from others
• friends and family members are worried about your drinking
• feel uncomfortable where alcohol is not served
