Alcohol abuse is a chronic disorder that results in patterns of a person being unable to control their drinking. Some signs of a drinking problem include a high alcohol tolerance, withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit and neglecting responsibilities in favor of drinking or finding alcohol.

If you or someone you love is experiencing an alcohol abuse disorder, you are not alone, and professional help is available from the compassionate team at Sana at Stowe.

How Can I Tell if Someone Is Abusing Alcohol?

When left untreated, an alcohol abuse disorder can quickly spiral out of control and cause harm to a person’s life and those around them. While everyone experiences alcohol abuse disorders differently, knowing how to tell if someone is an alcoholic can make a significant difference in the recovery process.

Some of the most common signs of alcoholism include:

Signs of a High-Functioning Alcoholic

It is also essential to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a high-functioning alcoholic. While these individuals can hide their disorder better, they still have a dependency on alcohol that can lead to severe consequences.

If a person is a high-functioning alcoholic, they may experience signs of alcohol dependence such as:

  • Concealing how much alcohol they drink
  • Denying their alcohol use disorder
  • Becoming defensive when asked about their drinking habits
  • Drinking in situations that are inappropriate or can become dangerous
  • Developing health problems related to drinking, like high blood pressure or gaining weight
