Most people who are problem drinkers would likely not acknowledge their issues with alcohol. They might point the blame elsewhere, attempt to diminish the real amount of alcohol they consume, drink in secret or hide their stash from others and experience panic and unease if they are unable to drink due to situational developments (running out of money, attending a social function that is “dry”, etc.). These are all warning signs that problems with alcohol have already developed and are quickly spiraling out of control.
If a person you care about is having problems with alcohol it can seem to take over your life too. You may experience additional stress worrying about their safety, health and livelihood. It is important for you as the loved one of a problem drinker to understand that you are not responsible for their actions. While it may not seem that the person you care about is making a choice to abuse alcohol, they are. It is their personal choice to reach for a drink to calm their nerves, relieve their stress or lessen their pain. Instead of making a conscious decision to redirect their attention into a positive and healthy way they are choosing to abuse alcohol to solve their immediate problem, only creating larger issues for themselves down the line.
