The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction

The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction

In terms of drinking alcoholic beverages, the experience is quite common. The effects of alcohol is even quite common. In a normal condition, after drinking a handful, the person may become dizzy and feels like vomiting. This is famously referred to as being “tipsy”. Alcoholic drinks has substances that go to a part of the brain and change its function, thus, imbalance occurs, violent and risky behaviors, and irrational thinking. However, there are ways on how one can recover from the state of being tipsy. One needs to get an ample amount of sleep or he or she might need to drink a hot cup of coffee in order to recover and be sober again.

It is quite a different case when we look alcohol drinking in terms of alcohol addiction. Despite negative consequences, people could not stop drinking once they are in a state of alcohol addiction. Alcohol addiction is a very big drinking problem wherein drinking alcoholic drinks becomes a habit to the person. This is quite a dilemma because the drinking habit may result to undesirable and negative effects. The powerful effect of alcohol addiction is to encourage the sufferer to drink at times and in amounts that are health damaging. The secondary damage is caused by an inability to control one’s drinking manifests in different ways. There are different important social costs that alcohol addiction can give to one’s family and friends. Alcohol addiction can have adverse effects on mental health causing psychiatric disorders to develop.

On a very important note, one of the primary cause of abuse is due to alcohol addiction. There is an easy air of violence once alcohol is taken in. The wives and children of the alcohol addict is usually the one most affected by this kind of violence. Though we may say that these people are not sober when they beat their wives and children but then, they could not take away the trauma and the painful memory they have left in their loved ones.

The reason of alcohol addiction can be attributed to one’s genes. If one traces his family tree, and one of his family members or ancestors are alcoholics, then the person may be at risk for alcohol addiction. The gene responsible for alcohol addiction is currently being studied. However, there are also other factors that might contribute to one’s alcohol addiction such as the kind of friends you have and the amount of stress you currently have.

Family has long been considered a basic unit of every society. It is where the person first learns to talk, to think, to feel, and to response. When a father has a drinking problem, he could be a causative factor to his son’s drinking problem in the future. The father will be seen as a model by the child. The father is usually seen as the primary role model for one’s own behavior. Thus, the child may learn that it is fine to be drinking all the time. This is frightening because as the child grows, no one could be there to show him or her as to what is really right and wrong. The mother is not always aware of the transference that is happening to her child.

Moreover, alcohol addiction is a disease that nobody seems to accept. This would create a problem because an alcohol addict might have a hard time accepting his or her situation. There is no difference despite one saying he or she is a functional alcohol addict. They are just in denial. Yes, they function well when they are sober, but as soon as they get their hands on a bottle of beer, they become the alcohol addicted dad or the alcoholic and violent son. Though the occurrence of alcohol addiction is rampant among men, women are never exempted. They are also at risk with alcohol addiction. They too could have alcohol problems.

Alcohol addiction is a dangerous situation that one should be vigilant of.
