When faced with an alcoholism problem, or binge drinking, it can be hard to know what is normal and what is unsafe. It’s not always obvious when drinking has gone from casual to abusive.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) defines excessive alcohol use as: “heavy drinking, binge drinking, alcohol use by people under the minimum legal drinking age (21), and any alcohol use by pregnant women.” Any of these situations can be considered problem drinking, especially if the person’s life, ability to function in daily activities, and relationships are affected.
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and alcoholism are dangerous and can cause or exacerbate a variety of health conditions and chronic diseases. Substance use disorder not only has mental effects but physical ones as well, including pancreatitis, high blood pressure, and liver cirrhosis. It can also be tied to several cancers including mouth, liver, larynx, throat, and esophagus. Among those health issues are also psychological disorders that can cause depression, violence, suicide, or homicide.
Though alcoholism and AUD aren’t generally known to be caused via heredity, there are numerous studies that demonstrate a connection between alcoholism and genetics.
The first signs of alcohol abuse can be easy for some to miss. Many people with a drinking problem themselves are often unaware. Recovery is easier when you get help early on.
