What is an alcohol addiction?
Alcohol addiction is when someone drinks more than the 'normal' amount of alcoholic drink. It also happens that you drink at several times during the day and do this even when there is no company. If you drink and cannot stop when you actually want to, this may indicate an addiction. One in ten people is addicted to alcohol.
Alcohol is very harmful to the body and the brain, especially when it is consumed to a large extent. Alcohol is available everywhere nowadays. It is socially accepted in our society, which makes it very difficult not to drink. It is often difficult to say “no”.
Because of this, people often give in and drink more than they might want.
