Why is drinking so addictive? I’ll order one drink and before I know it I’ve already had seven more.

Everything is addictive if you think about it. However, alcohol is chemically known to be addictive because it releases dopamine in the brain. If you’re having a hard time with limiting your drinking I would try and talk to a few close friends or family members about it before things get worse. Good luck.

Alcohol makes you feel good, it allows you to let loose and gives you courage. It takes you out of reality and sometimes that’s what people need. I would try and find a healthier way to escape reality though. Try exercise or meditation. I hope this helps.
