Understanding the Different Types of Alcohol Addictions
There are different types of alcohol use disorders, which vary in terms of habits and severity. It is important to understand these differences when applied to alcohol treatment.
Binge drinking is most common for individuals between the ages of 18-21, but can occur at any age. This type of addiction is classified as having more drinks in one session than the body can process effectively. For women, it’s more than 3 drinks, for men, it’s more than 5 drinks.
The consequences of binge drinking can result in school or work absenteeism, poor academic or work performance, hangovers, memory loss, and risky behavior which may result in injury, assault, or impulsive sexual activity.
Alcohol abuse occurs when an individual is drinking too much or too often, and negative effects on their life begin to manifest.
These effects may include impaired driving, neglect of daily responsibilities including work and family, strained relationships, and legal/financial problems related to alcohol misuse.
Alcohol Addiction or Alcohol Dependence
Alcohol addicts incur the same problems as abusers, but they have the added symptom of dependence. This means that is is especially difficult to cut back or quit, as it results in serious and sometimes deadly withdrawal effects including cravings, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, shakiness, tremors, and seizures.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Abuse
- Feeling guilty or ashamed about alcohol consumption
- Often “black outing” from drinking or having memory loss
- Neglecting primary responsibilities such as school, work, and family
- Using alcohol even though it could harm physical health such as drinking while driving, using alcohol with medication, etc.
- Use alcohol to self-medicate or “relax”
- Problems with family or other personal relationships
- Drinking alone, hiding use from friends and family
- Strong tolerance to alcohol, often needing more to have the same effect
- Withdrawal symptoms occur when not drinking
- Lack of motivation/interest
