Alcohol is part of our society. People use it to celebrate, socialize, relax, and enhance the enjoyment of meals. Nearly 90 percent of adults in the United States report that they drank alcohol at some point in their lifetime, and more than half report drinking in the last month. Although most people drink in moderation, nearly 40 percent of India, adults drink in excess of the low-risk guidelines established by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

Common Symptoms of Alcohol Abuse

If left untreated, alcohol abuse can spiral out of control quickly. When alcohol abuse begins to negatively impact a person’s life and causes harm, it is diagnosed as alcohol use disorder (AUD). Recognizing the warning signs of alcohol abuse and getting proper treatment can make a significant difference in someone’s recovery process.
Some of the most common symptoms of alcohol abuse are:
• Experiencing temporary blackouts or short-term memory loss • Exhibiting signs of irritability and extreme mood swings • Making excuses for drinking such as to relax, deal with stress or feel normal • Choosing drinking over other responsibilities and obligations • Becoming isolated and distant from friends and family members • Drinking alone or in secrecy • Feeling hungover when not drinking • Changing appearance and group of acquaintances you hang out with

Treating Alcoholism

Alcoholism is the most severe use of alcohol, and it leads to an inability to manage drinking habits. When a person is unable to control his alcohol use habit, it is alcoholism. Every person who suffers from alcoholism feels he/she cannot work or do his regular chores without drinking alcohol. It leads to many problems and effects that a person’s professional life, personal life, relationships, and physical and mental health. Over the period, it leads to serious issues that can damage and lead to complications in a person's life. Every person has a right to lead a healthy life, and so he or she should work hard to achieve it. Only then the world will become a good place to live in. It is very obvious that a family who has a drunkard in it will never have a stable and cozy life there will always be problems. The dangers of alcohol abuse cannot be ignored in the slightest. Every member of the family will be affected because of the bad behavior of the drunkard in the family. Especially children are the first to be affected.

In the following article, I have discussed alcoholism and how to get rid of this bad habit. It will be helpful to those people and families who are suffering because of this issue.
