There is a very high rate of alcohol and drug abuse throughout the country. Due to its availability, this substance is easily accessible and cheap. Those who abuse substances may believe they are just enjoying themselves and have nothing to worry about, but their addiction is already well underway.
If you want to make sure you might have an alcohol addiction, look for these three indicative signs.
- Becoming distant or isolated from close friends and family members.
When a family member starts to ask you questions implying alcoholism, your mood starts to change. You make excuses, tell false stories, or distance yourself from them to avoid questions about alcohol use. Also, you always say things like you only drink because you are stressed and tired.
- You drink most of the time and become secretive.
One of the obvious signs that you need treatment is you always drink. Also, you hide your drinking habit because you don’t want people to tell you to have an alcohol problem.
You are afraid to know what people will say, so you start to be secretive about your drinking.
- Drinking alcohol even if it harms your physical, social, career, or relationship.
You still choose to drink over your family, friends, and career. You do not care about anything else as long as you can enjoy your drinking habit.
