Dealing with the initial stages of alcohol addiction

It is hard to think that you have an addiction to alcohol because it is so ingrained in our British culture as something we consume to relax, celebrate or socialise. It is freely available and so often one of the focal points of any night out or celebration. Whilst alcohol can be enjoyed safely and with little effect on health, there can be a point you reach where you are no longer using alcohol on the rare celebratory occasion or in moderation. If you feel you are beginning to rely on alcohol as a coping mechanism or find it hard to not open a bottle of wine after work, it might be time to start thinking if it is becoming a problem.

The initial stages of alcohol addiction can be tricky to spot in yourself and other people. This is why we have experts on hand to help you or a loved one deal with what might be the start of an addiction. It is important to think about why you are having an alcoholic drink. Is it the only way you can relax? Is it to help you gain confidence? Does it help you to forget about any problems you may be experiencing? Before alcohol addiction becomes a serious problem it is important to address any issues you may be facing that could be drawing you to alcohol as a temporary solution.

Alcohol rehabilitation can help you to address the reasons you are turning to alcohol for help and to help you face situations where alcohol is present. It is difficult initially to identify and then address alcohol addiction partly due to the fact it is socially acceptable and we are quite often encouraged by our peers to abuse it as part of a regular night out. Our rehabilitation clinic in London can help you address these early stages of alcohol addiction and give you the tools necessary to fight it. Alcohol abuse is something you or a loved one may be experiencing and we are here to help you address it, deal with it and move on from it. Repeated anti-social behaviour can be a warning sign that someone is suffering from alcohol abuse. Alcohol rehab can help to combat this and other effects someone suffering can be experiencing.
