Do I have an Alcohol Addiction?
Drinking alcohol can start off as a social pastime, with a drink after work with friends once a week, then this could escalate into a couple of nights a week and can eventually begin to spiral out of control. Addiction is an illness where you become addicted to a substance that you begin to abuse. You may notice that the length of time between your drinking episodes is getting smaller, even if you are continuing to function and go about your daily life. Alcoholism isn’t classified by how much you are drinking, for each person this is different. Some people need a drink as soon as they wake up in the morning, where others don’t crave a drink until they are on their way home from work, or until late at night. In some cases addiction doesn’t even mean that you are drinking everyday, you may binge drink on weekends and it has started to affect your ability to work on a Monday morning.
