Casual Drinking vs. Addiction: When to Seek Alcohol Help

Young Woman Considering Seeking Alcohol HelpFor many people, enjoying an occasional drink (or a few) is no big deal. When an individual is habitually unable to control the amount they drink or how frequently they partake, it’s likely they’re suffering from alcohol addiction and need alcohol help.

Alcoholism can be identified by the following signs and symptoms:

  • Inability to control how much or how often you drink
  • Wanting to limit how much you drink, but being unable to
  • Feeling a strong urge, need, or compulsion to drink
  • Sacrificing social, personal, and professional activities for the sake of drinking
  • Failing at personal and professional relationships due to your behavior when drinking
  • Developing a tolerance to alcohol that requires you to drink more in order to feel a buzz
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, shaking, tremors, and others, when you try to stop drinking
