Alcohol – Millions of people drink alcohol responsibly every day without developing a problem. However, there are others who cannot drink even a small amount of alcohol without it affecting them psychologically and physically. For these individuals, drinking alcohol quickly develops into a substance abuse problem and they will need help to recover at some point. When someone is suffering from alcoholism, there will be certain signs and symptoms that can be observed. Depending on the severity of the condition, those symptoms can be difficult to spot, or they may be especially obvious. The problem is that warning signs and symptoms of alcoholism can remain unnoticed until it’s too late. By the time these indicators become obvious, the alcoholism has advanced to a severe degree and the individual has been struggling with his substance abuse problem for a considerable amount of time. Identifying these symptoms as early as possible will help you, or your loved one, get the needed treatment that much sooner. Early treatment may circumvent the negative consequences that often accompany prolonged substance abuse.
