Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction in Women

If left untreated, alcohol abuse can spiral out of control quickly. When alcohol abuse begins to negatively impact a women’s life and causes harm, it is diagnosed as alcohol use disorder (AUD). This could be through overconsumption of wine, beer or hard liquor. Recognizing the warning signs of alcohol abuse and getting proper treatment can make a significant difference in someone’s recovery process.

While there is no exact formula for determining whether or not someone is an alcoholic, symptoms often co-occur. One symptom may snowball into another, fueling additional problems down the road.

Some of the most common symptoms of alcohol abuse are:

  • Experiencing temporary blackouts or short-term memory loss
  • Exhibiting signs of irritability and extreme mood swings
  • Making excuses for drinking such as to relax, deal with stress or feel normal
  • Choosing to drink over other responsibilities and obligations
  • Becoming isolated and distant from friends and family members
  • Drinking alone or in secrecy
  • Feeling hungover when not drinking
  • Changing appearance and group of acquaintances you hang out with
