Are You Addicted to Alcohol or Drugs?

It can be tough for people in Gloucester to decide if they are addicted to alcohol or drugs. The problem is that if they are then their thinking processes will be clouded by the denial that is associated with this type of condition. It is often said that addiction is the only disease that tells you that you do not have it. There is also the reality that people tend to underestimate their own problems. They can do this by looking at the worst examples of people who are caught in addiction and reassuring themselves by saying that "at least they are not that bad." The reality is that you do not need to be a rock bottom addict in order to suffer greatly from this condition. If you have any concerns about your alcohol or drug use and you live in the Gloucester area, it is strongly advised that you do not ignore them. You can contact us now on 0800 140 4824 to discuss your situation. We will almost certainly have a way out of addiction that will work for you.

Signs that You May be Addicted to Alcohol or Drugs

There are plenty of self-assessment tools that people can use to judge if they have an addiction to alcohol or drugs. These assessment tools have their limitations, though, and there will be certain individuals who are addicted but it does not show up in the test (for example, the elderly and high functioning alcoholics). These assessments should never been taken too seriously but some of the signs that the individual does have an addiction problem would include:

    • · The individual has physical symptoms if they try to stop using the substance or they need to reduce their intake. This is evidence that the person's body has needed to adapt to the substance, and that they are now physically dependent. These withdrawal symptoms are the most obvious signs of addiction, but they are not always obvious – the individual can mistake withdrawals for hangover symptoms or they might never allow levels of the chemical to fall low enough in their blood stream that they would experience withdrawals.
    • · When people become physically dependent on a substance, they will also develop tolerance for it. This means that they need to use more of it to get the same effect as what they once would have with a smaller dose.
    • · The individual is likely to experience cravings for the substance when they do not have it. This is due to psychological addiction. The individual may also find it extremely difficult to imagine how they would be able to cope without the substance in their life.
    • · The individual has tried to reduce or control their intake of the substance but they have not been able to maintain this over any significant amount of time.
    • · They have failed to meet their work, family, or social commitments because of the use of alcohol or drugs.
    • · The individual is spending increasing amounts of time thinking about the substance. It seems to be taking over their life more and more.
    • · They may have lost interest in activities that they once enjoyed. They may feel resistant about going anywhere where there is not going to be alcohol or drugs available.
