Addiction to alcohol can be tackled well by involving the family and using right medicines for the withdrawal symptoms.

If intake of alcohol is stretched to the extent where it transcends over health, personal, financial and work limitations, it is termed as addiction. Alcohol is a drug which acts on the nervous system by exciting, at the same time limiting, the impulsiveness. Dopamine is another substance released more at the junction of two nerve cells that increase the pleasurable aspects encouraging one to go for another drink. Soon, one drink which used to give the "kick" takes more than three to four, and then in search of the elusive pleasure one goes on, and in a few years finds oneself getting addicted.

If one is compelled to have a drink, he would get irritated if unable to find one, drinks alone, and keeps increasing the amount of alcohol every time The intoxication leads one to legal and relationship problems till he finds himself in need of de-addiction therapy.
