How Can Alcohol Affect Your Relationships?
When it comes to alcoholism there are three people in that relationship, the alcoholic, the nonalcoholic, and the alcohol. Whether you want to believe it or not, alcohol impacts every relationship in the life of an alcoholic.
Alcohol can impact social and personal relationships. People may turn away from the increase in risky behaviors, the lack of care for their or your personal safety, and the general lack of responsibility when it comes to drinking.
Family or relationship problems that can occur due to drinking include: violence, marital conflict, infidelity, jealousy, economic insecurity, divorce, and fetal alcohol syndrome.
Alcohol also impacts your work performance. Low-productivity and quality and absenteeism can cause significant stress and issues with work-based relationships. While alcoholism is a disability that you cannot be fired for, significant changes to your work schedule and duties can occur, and your workplace may have specific requirements and rules in place that prevent drinking/being drunk on the job.
Alcohol can thoroughly impact every aspect of your life.
What Are Common Signs of Alcohol Abuse?
There are many common signs when it comes to determining how alcohol can affect your relationships.
If your or your loved one’s drinking is consistently more than planned, more frequent than planned, or occurs until you blackout or have severe hangover/withdrawal symptoms the following day, it might be time to consider getting help with addiction.
Additionally, if your drinking or recovering from drinking is impacting your personal responsibilities at work, home, or school, or if you’ve stopped participating in hobbies or activities you love, these could be signs that your drinking is out of control.
If you feel like this might describe your or someone you care about, contact SEE Purpose Center for Addiction Treatment today to see how we can support transition to a healthy sober lifestyle.
