Alcoholism - Causes And Home Remedies To Control The Urge

Author : Dr Easton Patrick

Alcoholism is the practice of drinking alcohol and it gradually takes the shape of addiction. It begins with occasional drinking, but soon it becomes a habit and the addict takes to regular drinking. Some drink under societal or group pressure. Others drink to evade responsibilities. In no time, the person becomes slave to the habit and cannot live without it. It is a fallacy that alcohol intake de-stresses life. One can easily recognize an alcoholic by his or her puffy face, blood shot eyes and hoarse voice. An alcoholic usually experiences disturbed sleep, impaired judgment, rapid pulse rate, unstable gait, bouts of vomiting and delirium. Also an alcoholic suffers from mood swings, irritability, and heights of emotions, suspicion and lack of confidence.

Alcohol intake disrupts the balance of certain brain chemicals like gamma-aninobutyric acid, dopamine making the alcoholic's body crave for drinks, and also making him or her highly impulsive. Alcoholism ultimately leads to hazardous health ailments like cirrhosis of liver, damage of brain cells, stomach disorders and flaccid heart. Men are more likely to fall a prey to alcoholism than women. The causes of alcoholism include genetic predisposition, emotional stressors like demise of partner, loneliness, disharmony in conjugal life, heartbreak, inability to address ambitions, getting cornered in office etc, economic woes like loss of job and inability to meet family expenses, huge debts etc and psychological ailments like depression, schizophrenia etc.
