Alcoholism is a very common medical condition one can have. The symptoms vary depending on how frequent and how much alcohol is consumed by the individual.

Physical symptoms of alcohol poisoning and overconsumption include slurred speech, poor balance, clumsiness, delayed reflexes, nauseated feelings and stomach pains and loss of consciousness. Someone abusing alcohol makes drinking a central activity of their life, displacing healthy activity and relationships, creating severe social issues in a person’s life. People who abuse alcohol lose control over the quantity they consume, ignore their families and professions, get easily irritated and can either get insomnia or hypersomnia. Long-term alcohol abuse and addiction put the user at the risk for serious withdrawal conditions if they attempt to stop alcohol consumption without proper medical advice and supervision.

Alcoholism withdrawal concerns point to advance addictive disease, and should not be dismissed. These can include tremors, seizures, hallucinations and agitation.  A sudden discontinuation of alcohol consumption can often lead to a fatal condition called delirium tremens. If professional help is not sought the withdrawal symptoms can lead to death. Generally medical help needs to be acquired in order to safely reduce or forgo excessive consumption of alcohol. Long term substance abuse can lead to detachment from the social life and create serious mental as well as physical health concerns.

In addition to serious ramifications for the user’s career and family life, alcoholism can cause irreversible damage to critical organs and body systems including the liver, heart, brain and nervous system. Alcohol abuse and addiction also produce other medical side effects. The person struggling with alcoholism usually is in denial and attribute these issues to other medical conditions, in order to avoid facing the harsh reality of addiction.

In most cases patients struggling with alcoholism lose their jobs, leaving the person and their dependents in severe financial trouble.
