What is alcohol addiction?
Alcohol addiction, also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD) or alcoholism, is a chronic brain disorder characterised by the compulsive and uncontrollable consumption of alcohol, despite its negative impact on an individual's physical health, mental well-being, relationships, and daily functioning.
Alcohol addiction can develop over time as a person's brain becomes increasingly dependent on alcohol to stimulate the release of certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, which are associated with pleasure and reward. This dependency can result in increased tolerance to alcohol, requiring the individual to consume larger amounts to achieve the desired effects. Eventually, the person may experience withdrawal symptoms, such as anxiety, irritability, tremors, or even seizures, when they attempt to reduce or stop drinking.
Factors contributing to the development of alcohol addiction can include genetic predisposition, environmental factors, social influences, and psychological factors, such as coping with stress, trauma, or mental health disorders.
Alcohol addiction can lead to a wide range of negative consequences, including liver damage, cardiovascular issues, cognitive impairment, and an increased risk of accidents, violence, or suicide.
