Causes of alcoholism addiction
4 causes of alcoholism addiction:
• Stress: Stress is the number one cause of people starting to drink. People are under the conception that they will get relief from their problems by taking a few drinks. This is just a temporary stopgap and as soon as the euphoria of the alcohol wears off you are right back where you started. Worse than that you experience a low when the alcohol effects wear off and you are depressed as well as stressed. This prompts you to take a couple more drinks and very soon you are on the cycle of destruction.
• Relationships: Relationships are a common cause of drinking. Again until you solve your emotional problems drinking will be a temporary fix and your problems will just get worse. Some counseling is often in these cases.
• Losing your job: This is a big blow for many and can sometimes come without warning. This type of shock can easily push a person to go to the bar for some quick solace. But this is a big mistake that will lead to a lifetime of problems. You can get another job over time but you cannot get another life.
• Partying and binge drinking: This is the most insidious way that drinking creeps up on you. We all have our wild moments especially in college with binge drinking. This can upset your body’s balance and get you addicted to alcohol before you know it. Social drinking is one thing but frequent party drinking and especially binging, will lay you wide open for alcohol addiction. Once you are hooked it is very difficult to change your lifestyle and even your friends to quit your addiction.
Relying on alcohol is a way for people to drown their sorrows. However in reality this will only make matters worse. Before you take that drink, think about resolving the problems before you fall into the trap of taking “just a couple of drinks.”
