Symptoms and Side Effects of Alcohol Abuse

Recognizing side effects of alcohol abuse is imperative when considering treatment for alcohol addiction. Individuals who abuse alcohol may experience short-term memory loss (“blacking out”), slurred speech, loss of motor coordination, stumbling, and dilated pupils. An individual with alcoholism lacks control over the compulsion to drink, craving the substance in the same manner as someone starving from lack of food or water. Alcoholics also lack control over how many drinks they consume in a single sitting. Increased alcohol use results in an increased tolerance for the substance, resulting in a need to drink greater amounts in order to achieve the same effects.

Before you consider the dangers of quitting without a proper medically supervised detox, you should know the alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

An individual with an alcohol problem may: hide the fact that he is drinking alcohol, drink at inappropriate times (such as first thing in the morning), drink alone excessively, or hide the bottles so others will not “know” about the problem.

Long-term health risks associated with alcohol abuse include liver damage/disease (such as cirrhosis), cancer (notably of the esophagus, pharynx, and mouth), memory loss, impaired brain function, impaired motor function, coma, and possible death.

In addition to its physical consequences, alcoholism can lead to social consequences, such as the deterioration of personal relationships, divorce or separation from one’s partner, financial difficulty, loss of employment, DUI or DWI, domestic violence, and assault. In children, alcoholism can lead to difficulty learning and poor academic performance. Children of alcoholics are at risk of becoming alcoholics themselves.
