The Difference Between Drug and Alcohol Abuse and Addiction
Before you conclude that an addiction is present, it is imperative to distinguish the difference between drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.
Although you may believe that abuse and addiction is somewhat similar, this is not true.
Drug and alcohol abuse will see an individual irregularly use substances to help them unwind. In many cases, this abuse is conducted in a social setting.
Binge drinking, for example, is one of the most common forms of alcohol abuse.
Unlike addictions, those that abuse substances will be able to function without frequently administering them.
Although they will experience short-term side effects such as hangovers, drug and alcohol abuse is not as severe as addiction.
Nevertheless, if you, or someone you know, regularly abuses substances, it is still crucial to seek help. Failure to do so could see an addiction arise.
An addiction, on the other hand, sees an individual become reliant on a substance to complete everyday tasks. They will also often find that they are unable to think clearly without consuming drugs or alcohol.
As an addiction cripples them, they will find it challenging to stop administering a substance.
As and when they are unable to obtain the substances that they need, they will experience withdrawal symptoms, causing them to become extremely unwell.
Signs That You Are Battling an Addiction
If you have come to realise that what you thought was drug and alcohol abuse has escalated into an addiction, you must reach out for help as soon as possible.
The sooner that your addiction is addressed, the easier it may be to overcome. Left untreated, addiction can quickly take control of your life, leaving your physical and psychological health to spiral.
Unfortunately, the ramifications of addictions can have life-changing consequences. In addition to harming your mental and physical health, addictions can induce conditions such as heart and liver failure.
If you think that you may be suffering from an addiction, you are likely to experience symptoms including;
- – Increased anxiety
- – Frequent mood swings
- – Unexpected weight loss
- – Changes in your physical appearance such as red eyes
- – Inability to concentrate
- – Feeling somewhat irritable
- – Headaches
- – Nausea
- – Confusion
Some of the above symptoms are also associated with withdrawals. If you consistently administer drugs or alcohol and have been unable to do so over the last few days, you are likely withdrawing from a substance.
In this case, we would advise you to reach out for urgent support. Withdrawing from a substance can be extremely unpleasant and should only be administered by health professionals.
Signs That Someone Else Is Suffering from A Drug or Alcohol Addiction
