What Are the Signs That an Alcohol Addiction Is Present?
As a friend, family member, colleague, or employer points out that they are concerned that you are consuming large quantities of alcohol, you may be left wondering whether you have become addicted to alcohol.
Although an increase in alcohol consumption does not always mean that an addiction is present, it is in your best interest to gauge whether you need to seek support from a drug and alcohol rehab in County Antrim.
If you have become addicted to alcohol, you will likely experience a wealth of signs and symptoms. These signs and symptoms include, but are not limited to the following;
- – Intense cravings for alcoholic drinks at various times of the day
- – Persistent headaches and nausea when alcohol is not consumed
- – Heightened levels of anxiety
- – Feeling somewhat exhausted
- – Insomnia
- – Paranoia
- – Frequently turning to alcohol to reduce negative thoughts and feelings
- – Experiencing mood swings and feeling somewhat agitated
- – Inability to focus or concentrate on simple tasks
- – Failing to remember something that someone has said to you
- – Weight loss
In addition to the above, if you have developed an alcohol addiction and have become dependent on alcohol, you may have started to isolate yourself from your friends and family in a bid to keep your addiction a secret from them.
Should you believe that you are experiencing more than one of the above symptoms, please do not hesitate to reach out to us today. It is in your best interest to seek support and treatment before your addiction spirals beyond your control and consumes your life.
As touched on above, an increase in alcohol consumption does not necessarily mean that you have become addicted to alcohol.
However, if you have recently found yourself turning to alcohol on a more frequent basis than you usually would to mitigate stress and relieve yourself of pessimistic thoughts and emotions, we would still encourage you to reach out for help.
Abusing alcohol to relieve stress can cause an addiction to arise. It can also harm your physical and psychological health if support is not sought.
What Has Caused My Alcohol Addiction to Arise?
As you come to terms with the fact that you have become reliant on alcohol, it is not uncommon for you to have a wealth of questions swirling in your mind.
One of the most prominent questions that many individuals have surrounds how they have become addicted to alcohol and what has caused their addiction to arise.
From stress at home to burnout in the workplace, and mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression to social influences, many factors can sadly cause an alcohol addiction to arise.
If you are unsure of what has caused your alcohol addiction to arise, it may be beneficial to know that as and when you attend rehab, you will have the opportunity to uncover the factors that have contributed to your addiction. In fact, this is a vital part of your recovery.
Through the employment of psychological and well-being therapies, you will be encouraged to delve into your past and come face-to-face with the moment your alcohol consumption spiralled beyond your control.
While this may cause you some distress, doing so will provide you with the ability to develop coping strategies and identify any triggers that may cause you to relapse. In turn, the risk of relapsing will be mitigated, enabling you to make a long-term recovery.
Is Rehab My Only Option?
When it comes to considering the support that is available to you, you may find yourself wondering if rehab is your only option.
Although referring yourself to a drug and alcohol rehab in County Antrim or further afield may seem somewhat daunting, rehab truly is in your best interest.
Not only will attending a rehab enable you to address your addiction, but it will provide you with the tools you need to overcome your addiction once and for all.
Furthermore, rehab will provide you with a safe space to withdraw from alcohol and overcome your dependency. Failure to withdraw in a safe and professional environment could see you more prone to relapse in the future. It could also see you more likely to develop a cross-addiction.
It should be considered that attending rehab is only the first step in your recovery. Upon completing a rehabilitation programme, you will be provided with aftercare support which will include attending recovery groups.
