Alcohol dependence has this man with hands to face, depressed.The sad thing about someone becoming addicted to alcohol is they are usually the last person to realize their plight. They often retreat into denial because facing the fact they suffer from an addiction would indicate they need to stop drinking and seek help. Make no mistake about, alcoholism is an insidious disease that destroys a person’s soul and spirit. If left untreated, alcohol dependence can result in permanent physical and mental problems, financial ruin, jail and/or death.

The Personal Problems You Might Be Having With Alcohol Dependence

In the throes of an addiction to alcohol, you have probably seen a disruption in your day-to-day life. Your relationships might be strained and you might be facing issues at work with your boss, subordinates or other employees. Most likely, there has been a significant change in your demeanor and personality, which might have you on the outs with people who are normally an important part of your life.

If your alcohol dependence situation is nearing a bottom or begins to get worse as the days pass, you could eventually find yourself facing issues with law enforcement. This could be related to driving violations while under the influence, disorderly conduct issues in public or burglary charges related to your attempts to steal in order to get money for alcohol. In many cases, people with drinking problems end up with financial issues that land them in bankruptcy court. All of these things are typical issues associated with drinking problems.

The Physical and Emotional Problems You Might Be Having With Alcohol Dependence

The physical issues related to alcohol dependence are no less severe. Remember, alcohol is a drug. As such, it creates health issues related to blood pressure and the heart. Your facial area may begin to show redness on the cheek and nose area. Stomach issues like gastritis can appear, causing weight loss and an uneven appetite. Also, the liver can incur irreversible damage over a long period of time. Finally, depression and sadness can easily become part of the emotional package that comes with your drinking.
