How To Know If You Have a Drinking Problem

Many people can have an occasional drink and stop after one or two while attending a social event or unwinding after a long day. There are; however, a larger majority of people that are unable to drink in moderation and cannot simply stop. Over drinking can lead to problems in your life when it comes to relationships, work, and sometimes legal issues. Excess drinking can also cause your judgment to be impaired, increasing the chance for you to make dangerous decisions, which could potentially harm or even kill someone.

What Rock Bottom Looks Like

One does not have to spend much time in recovery circles before hearing the term “hitting rock bottom.” While the words have an easily perceptible connotation, “rock bottom” may mean different things to different people. Certainly, in the earliest days of treatment for addictions, “rock bottom” may have implied the stereotypical town drunk slugging down booze from a bottle in a brown paper bag, or an addict raging and sweating, barely able to hang on until the next fix. While those images still hold true in some cases, “hitting rock bottom” applies to physical, mental and emotional depravity and despair.

When Drinking Becomes Alcoholism?

Keeping in mind that denial is the No. 1 symptom of alcoholism, sometimes a person will admit problem drinking, but cringes at the thought of admitting alcoholism. Despite ongoing education about the progression of alcoholism and increased awareness of symptoms and treatment, the word “alcoholism” still seems to bear a stigma. In order to distinguish the fine line between what one might label “problem drinking” and “alcoholism,” self-honesty is the most important tool.

Medical Detox

It’s important to start your recovery off right with a well performed detox. Detoxing cleanses the body of all the toxins and chemicals that substance abuse leaves behind to help you feel like your old self again. Depending on the substance abused, however, withdrawal symptoms can be quite severe. It’s recommended that you never detox alone, and that during detox you be under medical supervision to ensure a safe cleansing of the body.

Detox Begins Physical Healing

Before anything else in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction can proceed, detoxification has to take place. Substance abuse does serious damage to the body’s organs, cells, and blood system, often to the point of alcohol or drug poisoning. Even in the early stages of alcoholism or drug addiction, the body is affected. Some early symptoms can include vitamin deficiencies and hand tremors. In serious late stages, liver damage and brain malfunction can occur. Detoxification gives the body a chance to begin healing.

There are many ways that people with good intentions are actually displaying enabling behaviors which in turn harm addiction recovery.
