What is an

Alcoholic

You are most likely reading this website because you know someone who is chemically dependent. That person could be a loved one, friend, co-worker, parent, cousin or a neighbor. Alcoholism is just one of the ways that the disease of addiction can manifest itself in a chemically dependent person’s life. An alcoholic is chemically dependent because alcohol is a drug.

The chemically dependent person’s drug of choice may be “medical” marijuana, crack, cocaine, methamphetamine (meth), alcohol, barbiturates, Spice, Bath Salts, Mushrooms, LSD or any combination of those. What the substance is does not really matter, what does matter is that he or she is mis-using the drug or abusing the drug and this use is causing problems for him or her and you.

Problems of an Alcoholics

We help families become whole again
These types of problems described above may range from midly erratic behaviors on the part of the individual to major personality changes and in many cases physical deterioration. The individual is most likely performing poorly at work. Maybe there has been one or more DWI or DUI? Things are tense around the office…or home. Maybe you have caught the person in a lie, breaking promises or making wild excuses for his or her behavior that are directly related to his or her using of alcohol and other drugs or a combination of both.

Sometimes severe alcoholics, deep in their disease, will get themselves hospitalized, taken to jail or a detox unit for serious medical concerns relating to the alcoholism.

How to tell if someone is Alcoholic or chemically dependent

Now that you know a little bit about the characteristics of the disease, how can you go about determining whether someone you care about is suffering from it? Needless to say, this is not something you should take lightly. This is serious disease, alcoholism, and it kills people regularly if left untreated.

Some professionals believe that one person can not label another person when it comes to this disease, that it must be admitted by the person in question himself of herself. Alcoholism knows no gender, financial, racial or any other boundaries.

The following test questions, while not a diagnostic tool, can help you to determine if what you are thinking is true:

  • Has the person ever forgotten or denied things that happened during a drinking or using episode?
  • Has the person ever lied about his or her drinking or drug use?
  • Does the person make excuses for, or try to justify his or her drinking or using?
  • Does the person in question seem to have a low self-image?
  • Does the person seem to look forward to when he or she is able to drink or use drugs?
  • Has anyone else ever talked to you about his or her drinking and/or drug use?

If you answered yes to three more more of those questions, then there is a good chance that the person that you care about has a drinking or drug problem.

The definition of Chemical Dependency

DIG can help. Cal now
There is a very simple definition of chemical dependency that you might find helpful for your information:

“If the use of alcohol or other drugs is causing any continuing disruption in an individual’s personal, social, spiritual or economic life, and the individual does not stop using, he or she is chemically dependent. The refusal to stop using- even when using is clearly having an impact on a person’s life- signals a pathological attachment to the chemical and is one of the surest signs of harmful dependency.

The non-chemically dependent person may have one brush with the law. He or she may have one reprimand from his or her employer. Maybe even one simple family event. But its important to watch for these events happening over and over again. This is a pretty goood indicator that a person may be seriously chemically depenent.
