Alcoholism, is a illness involving the excessive use of alcoholic beverages, whether it's a can of beer


or other sources such as vodka, and whiskey etc. It often affects a lot of people and their families.   I


will discuss the symptoms of alcoholism.   I will continue into the effects of alcoholism.   Then conclude


with the treatment of the disease. It is a very serious disease.




Alcoholism has been often been thought of as a symptom of a psychological or social problem, or


as a learned, behavior to cope with the everyday problems peoples lives.   More recently alcoholism has


become recognized disease of it's own   Alcoholism usually develops over a period of a few years. Early


symptoms include spending an excessive amount of limited income on   alcohol. The availability of the


alcohol influences the person's choice of friends and the things that they do.   Alcohol becomes used as


more of   a relaxer than as a casual beverage.   At first, the alcoholic may have a high tolerance of


alcohol, drinking more and showing less effects than other drinkers. Alcohol begins to be more important


than the persons relationships, work, or even their   health.   The person progresses by losing control


over their drinking and are not able to control their habit.   A physical addiction may come later to


avoid the effects of a hangover.





The effects on major organ systems include a wide range of digestive disorders such as ulcers,


inflammation of the pancreas, and cirrhosis of the liver. The nervous system can also be permanently


damaged.   Blackouts, hallucinations, and extreme tremors may occur to the person as a direct result of


drinking alcohol. Studies have evidence that shows that heavy or even moderate drinking during pregnancy


can cause serious damage to the unborn child.   This is known as fetal alcohol syndrome.
