What are the symptoms of alcohol addiction?

Symptoms vary depending on the individual and include both the physical and psychological:

  • Regularly drink more then you intend to
  • Alcohol is a depressant so you often feel overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and depression
  • You make alcohol consumption a priority over other activities and neglect responsibilities
  • Alcohol decreases inhibition and you often participate in dangerous activities
  • You suffer from a depressed immune system
  • Regularly plagued by insomnia and feelings of fatigue
  • You experience physical symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sweating, shaking, headaches and loss of appetite
  • You suffer from cravings or withdrawal symptoms if you refrain from drinking for a period of time
  • You see the signs of cognitive damage in the form of blackouts and memory lapses
