Alcoholism is an epidemic in society today, and is a problem facing many in Williamsburg, VA. Alcohol is in fact a drug, the most commonly used and widely abused in the world. Alcohol addiction causes many problems, and people that abuse alcohol are more likely to become violent, struggle with their career and have problems in their relationships. Alcoholism can literally destroy your life.

Consuming alcohol is a common and acceptable practice in Williamsburg. The problem with alcohol addiction and alcoholism begins when consumption crosses the line from moderate drinking, to having to consume alcohol to avoid feeling bad or to feel comfortable in social situations. Alcohol addiction and alcoholism may be triggered by an individual's environment, the people he's associating with, etc. Whatever the case may be, if alcohol is being used in excess and an individual doesn't have enough control to put down that drink despite the consequences, there is a problem.

It may seem easier to pretend that nothing is wrong, but the longer a person continues his addictive behavior the worse off he will be in the long run.

  • Studies suggest that individuals who do not meet the criteria for alcohol dependence or abuse, but who are drinking at levels that place them at risk for increased problems, can be helped through screening and brief intervention.
  • An U.S. brewery recently launched a new caffeine-containing beer flavored with ginseng, that also comes in various fruity flavors; the danger with this type of alcoholic beverage is that young people may look at this product as a way to drink more beer and to still be able to remain alert, thereby falsely believing they can drink more before driving home.
  • Because alcoholism has a tendency to run in families, researchers are eager to isolate the genes that may influence a person's vulnerability to this condition; an individual's environment, such as peer pressure, being exposed to alcohol on a regular basis in the home while growing up, and the ease in which they can obtain liquor, also may influence drinking and the development of alcoholism.
  • The average adult metabolizes alcohol at a rate of about 8.5 g of alcohol per hour (i.e. about two-thirds of a regular beer). This rate can vary depending on several different factors, including the amount of alcohol that an individual normally drinks, whether they are male and female, liver size, and genetic factors.
