Signs of Increased Alcohol Addiction or Dependence

An alcoholic is completely dependent on alcohol. His whole life is a mission of constantly staying in touch with alcohol and to consume it whenever he can. It is not necessarily heavy drinking that leads a person to be an alcoholic or be dependent on alcohol, but the persons mindset towards alcohol. He may consciously or subconsciously be thinking of alcohol all the time which is not a good thing.

You surrounding environment can have a significant impact on your alcohol dependence. These include the type of company you keep and how much stress you tend to accumulate throughout your day. When a person is dependent on alcohol they may show certain signs. These signs include:

Is Alcoholism inherited?

Research shows that the risk for developing alcoholism does indeed run in families. The genes a person inherits partially explain this pattern, but lifestyle is also a factor. Currently, researchers are working to discover the actual genes that put people at risk for alcoholism. Your friends, the amount of stress in your life, and how readily available alcohol is also are factors that may increase your risk for alcoholism, alcohol dependence or alcohol addiction.

But remember: Risk is not destiny. Just because alcoholism or alcohol dependence tends to run in families doesn't mean that a child of an alcoholic parent will automatically become an alcoholic too. Some people develop alcoholism even though no one in their family has a drinking problem. By the same token, not all children of alcoholic families get into trouble with alcohol. Knowing you are at risk is important, though, because then you can take steps to protect yourself from developing problems with alcohol or alcohol abuse.

The average length of time you spend in an alcohol detox program is between three to seven days. Alcohol detox can be completed safely and effectively in any residential alcohol treatment program. If you are using drugs in conjunction with alcohol, it is imperative that this information is shared with the treating physician. These additional drugs can drastically alter the alcohol detox protocol designed for you, which is the tool used to manage your alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
