Drinking alcohol is not bad, but being addicted to it is worrisome. This habit is difficult to get rid of, especially if you don't see anything wrong with it or you do not recognise the signs that you’re an alcoholic. The five warning signs that you’re an alcoholic include:
1. Drinking to sleep
Some people drink to be able to fall asleep. Such people become restless if they have not drunk a few bottles of alcohol. If you fall into this category, then you are an alcoholic.
2. Being nonchalant and irresponsible
If you do not care about your responsibilities and think only about drinking, you might have to check your addiction to alcohol.
3. Drinking more than before
You are an alcoholic if you move from drinking a bottle or two to five or seven bottles of alcohol almost at once. This is a sign that you have become an addict and you must correct yourself before it is too late.
4. Not seeing it as a big deal
If you don't see anything wrong with drinking alcohol excessively, then you are an alcoholic.
5. Finding it difficult to quit
You are an alcoholic if quitting is a big problem and you will have to seek help.
