How Will I Know If My Partner Is Addicted To Alcohol?

If you are unsure that your loved one is addicted to alcohol, here are 4 of the most common symptoms:

  1. Experiencing strong cravings to drink alcohol.
  2. The inability to control their alcohol consumption.
  3. Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when alcohol isn’t available.

Other signs of alcohol addiction being present include:

  1. Drinking alcohol at irregular times of the day, e.g. during the morning or at work.
  2. Denying the fact that they have a drinking problem, despite seeing the damage it’s causing to themselves and the people around them.
  3. Becoming irritable or moody when they cannot drink alcohol.
  4. If you notice any of these signs and symptoms on your partner, then it’s clear that there is an alcohol problem at hand.
