What Is Alcoholism?

Alcoholism is a disease that gradually changes a person’s sense of control and thought process. Continued use of alcohol leads to dependence and the inability to control cravings for hard liquor, wine, or beer. When a person can’t control their cravings for alcohol or stop drinking once they have started, they are exhibiting warning signs of alcoholism. It is common for those with alcohol problems to maintain a constant buzz throughout the day, drink excessively at a time, or drink to cope with stress.

Drinking alcohol quickly and often forces your body to adapt to the amount consumed, leading to an alcohol tolerance. Tolerance drives the individual to drink more to experience the same effects. Alcoholics who go without a drink for even a few hours can begin to experience signs of withdrawal. Symptoms of withdrawal are never the same between two people, but some of the more common ones are:

  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Excessive sweating
  • Cold sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

Alcoholism is a complex disease and requires professional help to quit and stay sober. Those who attempt to quit on their own are at a higher risk of relapsing. Free by the Sea offers comprehensive and personalized treatment plans designed for the needs of each individual. Our professionals offer the following services to help you take back control of your life:
