Things That May Fuel Your Alcohol Addiction

Updated on August 13, 2013

So many people in our society today drink alcohol. Many are social drinkers and that is great if you drink responsible and know your limits and know when to stop drinking alcohol. Then there are those that seem to have got caught up in a trap and can't handle just a social drink or two or some say, "Special Occasion Drinkers."

These folks that may not be able to control their drinking and get a bit carried away at parties or that special occasion may have something deep within that over drinking tends to ease up the suffering and pain that lurks within them.

Things that may fuel your alcohol addiction may be unknown to the person involved. There must be something deep within that is bothering these individuals and they may not even know what it is.

I'm sure they wonder to themselves just why they may drink more than anyone else. Is it a disease? Is it just a release to their everyday life or is it an uncontrollable addiction?

Things That Could Fuel Your Addiction

There are so many things that can fuel your addiction and you may not even realize it's happening. I can think of a few that helped me become addicted to alcohol, so I will state them here and maybe you will find that these things could possibly be fueling your addiction as well. A lot of these things I mention here do not particularly pertain to my life, but may help you in yours.

  • Something that may of happened to you in your early childhood years that may have scarred you forever.
  • Parents may of fought in front of you and became divorced in the final outcome.
  • You may have been bullied in school and just never fit in with your classmates.
  • You may have lost your job or if self employed, having lack of work or no work at all.
  • You may be overwhelmed with bills and no money or income to pay them.
  • You may have had an injury that required pain medication to ease the pain or drank alcohol to ease up some of the pain.
  • You may have had a nasty divorce that drove you over the edge.
  • Financial difficulties.
  • You may have had the loss of a dear loved one and the only thing that would ease your pain is to drink alcohol.

These are just a few things that may fuel your addictions, but by drinking alcohol is only a temporary fix, because when the drinking is over those problems will be still sitting by your side.

I'm quite sure, everyone that drinks alcohol knows that by drinking to ease the pain or a temporary fix to your problems is NOT the answer.

The answer to all your problems is in your own hands and you must approach these problems in your life in a sober state of mind and not try to mask them with drinking alcohol.

Nothing ever will be resolved or corrected in life if we continue to try to drink our problems away. It will never leave you unless you are thinking straight and try to figure out how to correct it. We all know that we tend to think so much better being sober.  So, take action in your life and figure out what is fueling your addiction and leading you to be addicted to alcohol.

What I would recommend if you are suffering with an addiction and wondering what is causing you to over drink is to sit back and take a look at your life and try to analysis what may be fueling your addiction.

It could be any of the above or something that is not mentioned, but the problem must be confronted by you, and when you figure out the underlying reason you drink alcohol you may have just found what it is fueling your addiction.

      8 years ago from New Jersey Shore you are so right. Just to relieve stress for a short time then may turn to an addictiion. Nice hearing from you again and as always I appreciate your comment

      Many addictions are used to cope with life's stress - maybe getting some relief sometimes turns into a habit and then into an uncontrollable addiction. Interesting read.
