Alcoholism is a chronic disorder in which a person is
unable to refrain from frequent and excessive
consumption of alcohol.
Alcoholics have a puffy face with bloodshot eyes,
hoarse voice and a rapid pulse. They are suspicious,
irritable and over-emotional. Vomiting, delirium,
impaired judgment, and disturbed sleep are some of
the other symptoms that alcoholics suffer from.
Excessive drinking damages the liver and gradually leads
to cirrhosis. It also leads to disorders of the stomach
and bowels. It can cause damage to the brain cells, and
also affects the heart, which becomes weak and flabby.
Alcoholism starts with the individual taking an
occasional drink. This gradually becomes a habit and
leads to a state where the person cannot do without
alcohol. Some people drink alcohol to enliven social
gatherings under social pressure; for others, it is an
escape from the responsibilities or stresses of life.
