How to identify alcohol dependence: its main stages
A person who loves to drink strong drinks, over time drinks more and more, loses control over himself. Over time, he does not want to see anything other than alcohol in order to feel a pleasant clouding of consciousness. But alcohol radically affects metabolic processes, including the brain.
At the first stage of alcohol dependence, most alcoholics do not feel the need for treatment. Both men and women are confident that they can stop drinking at any time and do not believe that they have a problem with alcohol. A glass of vodka or a glass of whiskey is consistently associated with pleasure. Ethyl alcohol suppresses brain activity, making a person feel euphoric and pleasantly relaxed.
The first symptom that your loved one has a problem with alcohol is mental addiction to drinking. Other signs of alcohol addiction:
- The gag reflex disappears.
- The amount of alcohol consumed is constantly increasing.
- Drinking cravings are becoming overwhelming.
The experience of our specialists shows that treatment alcohol addiction in Kharkov rarely starts in the first step. Addiction to the second stage, which is characterized by a plateau of tolerance and the appearance of a hangover syndrome. At this time, the doses of alcohol consumed increase significantly, a person drinks a lot. By the way, if he does it cyclically (binge), then his fellow friends may not even know about his problems with alcohol.
The third stage of alcohol dependence is characterized by a decrease in alcohol tolerance. The alcoholic is no longer able to drink a lot, but he drinks in small doses almost around the clock. This phase is accompanied by a prolonged hangover, which can last more than a month, accompanied by alcoholic seizures and delirium.
