How can I tell if someone close to me is abusing alcohol, as opposed to just getting out of hand once in awhile?

If you are suffering from symptoms of alcohol withdrawal on a regular basis it probably means you are an alcoholic which is different from alcohol abuse, that means you are being careless in your drinking and drinking too often. I only have maybe two to three drinks every few days. I feel anything more would be alcohol abuse.

Alcohol abuse is sometimes hard to recognize, as the person themselves may not realize they have a problem, but if they are planning events around alcohol or if they get stressed out cos they can’t have a drink, that’s a sign they have a problem.

Everyone reacts differently to alcohol, including alcoholics findrehabcenters.org has some great answers and resources to help you find the answers like how do you know you are abusing alcohol. Like if you are need-ing to drink in order to be social, or if you are needing to drink more and more each time you drink to have the same effects you would before it may be abusing alcohol. I hope this helps you find the answers, you were looking for. This same site is helpful for asking not only ques-tions, but finding you or your loved one the help you need to take the first step towards re-covery.

Abusing alcohol isn’t just drinking more than you can handle, it’s the damage that you’re doing to your body and mind through drinking. If you feel like you need a drink often, or think about it from the morning, then you have a problem.

Alcoholism definition on familydoctor.org is a pattern of drinking too much alcohol too often. It interferes with your daily life. You may be suffering from alcohol abuse if you drink too much alcohol at one time, or too often throughout the week. It also is a problem if you cant stop drinking and it harms your relationships. It can cause you to be unable to function at work and in other are-as of your life.

Alcohol abuse isnt like alcoholism, it just means that you drink to much. It means you dont have to have it. It just means that you are drinking more than 3 drinks per night for girls or more than 4 for a man. I always try to have a full glass of water in between drinks to make sure I dont drink too much.
