Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
What is Alcoholism and Effective Alcoholism Treatment?
At any given time, most of us have ingested mood altering chemicals-coffee or tea, or even a few social glasses of wine or beer. These are acceptable socially as well as in health terms. When the limit is crossed, however, it becomes Substance Abuse. Why? People often substance abuse to fit in, avoid feeling bored, to belong to a special 'group', to relax, feel good, confident and forget about problems.
By altering the way they feel, they find a way out
of life's problems or difficult situations. Such escapism ensures
that they never develop the life skills of feeling good naturally.
The initial use may be to fit in socially. Later, it is a way of forgetting shame or disappointment. As this becomes gradual and continued, the initial euphoria is not achieved as the body is used to same amount daily and emotions fail to be deadened. To get out of the depression now, higher amounts of alcohol are taken. Later in a period of grief, even this isn't enough and the person becomes unknowingly dependent on alcohol. It is necessary for this regular consumption for the body to function normally. Unpleasant withdrawal symptoms occur when the addict tries to inhibit his usage.
The innumerable risks associated with it are: personal safety risks - death or injury by overdose, accident or aggression including brain damage, liver failure, mental problems etc.- a sure fire way to vicious behavior that can harm self, family and friends. This later leads to legal consequences such as imprisonment, fines, and criminal records.
The most insidious risk associated with alcoholism is physical or psychological factors - or even both that lead to the loss of control. A person can also become psychologically dependent on alcohol to supply comfort feelings of relaxation, self-confidence, self esteem, freedom from anxiety etc. The earlier casual desire is replaced with a powerful compulsion to just to feel normal. It is now beyond their control.
