If they prefer drinking by themselves and for no particular reason, this is a good sign of alcoholism. What are they trying to hide? Having cocktails with loved ones is considered a social event. Going to the club with friends is normal in today’s society. Even having a beer with a buddy after work is typical in most circles. In the movie Gone With The Wind, Rhett Butler chided Scarlett O’Hara for drinking alone, saying that people always found out and that their reputation would be ruined.

If a person seems to be home more than they are at work because of hangovers, this is another sure sign of alcoholism. This is especially true if this this person’s ‘dream job’; normally, it would be hard to talk this person into taking time off for a major illness. Now, they call out every Monday it seems or every other day after payday.

If a person who used to only drink 2 glasses a day to get a ‘buzz’ now suddenly find themselves needing six bottles of such and such to get a high, this is a powerful sign of alcoholism. Their body has become used to the effects and in order to reach past the plateau, they have to drink either more of their usual or something more potent.


4. Hide Alcohol

If a person keeps alcohol hidden in secret places, this is a good sign of alcoholism. Most people who drink have no problem keeping their bottles and cans in a refrigerator, however, alcoholics feel a sense of shame and often resort to hiding them.


5. Withdrawal Effects

Alcoholics feel the need to drink. If they have to go some time without a shot of something, their body feels the physical pains of withdrawal and those pains will not go away unless they are tended to. Alcoholism is no different than heroin, crack, or sex; they are all addictions and should be treated by a medical provider.


6. Personality Manager

If a person depends on drinking to become more outgoing, this a powerful sign of alcoholism. Alcohol becomes a crutch to be used to be more extroverted in certain situations, and the person will find any excuse to drink, whether it is to a job interview, an audition or to be a presenter.
