You’ve crossed the line from moderate drinking, 1-2 drinks per day. You want just one more drink. One becomes two more, three more, and more. You know you should stop. But you can’t. You’ve become dependent on alcohol. The chemistry in your brain has changed. You need more alcohol to get intoxicated, increasing your tolerance. Your ability to simply “cut down” on drinking is very difficult to achieve.
While how much it takes to get buzzed or drunk depends on gender, size, and tolerance, being an alcoholic has a lot to with behavior, and not being able to stop at an appropriate amount. If you’re stuck in a pattern of drinking despite the negative consequences to your health, wellbeing and those around you, you may not be able to stop without help. Alcoholism is defined as the dependency to alcohol. The cause of alcoholism is not known, but scientists see a strong link with genetic history.
