Am I an Alcoholic? That is a good question. Unfortunately only you can determine if you are or not. However if you’re asking that question, then chances are you at least may have a problem with drinking. There are signs that can help confirm a self diagnosis.
Early signs of alcoholism include being intoxicated all the time, binge drinking and drinking in dangerous situations. Progressive signs of alcoholism include drinking to blackout, violence and drinking while alone. Of course the main symptom of alcohol abuse occurs when someone continues to drink even after it causes significant problems for them.
The alcohol dependence stage is when the person begins neglecting activities, excessively using, impaired control of how much you consume, large amounts of time spent in alcohol-related activities, and physical symptoms of withdrawal and tolerance. Alcohol dependence is serious and is life threatening.
