    Why some one gets addicted to drink?

    They are adicted to drink because they are depressed, alone, lonely, don't know how to face and solve problems.  To overcome this adiction you need faith, strenght, courage, friends, good causes to occupy yourself with, and a willingness to change your life and become happy.  Here's a web site that can help;  www.sgi-usa.org.  It helped me with my drinking problem.

    aneka is correct.  These are the major reasons people begin drinking; and, the reasons they become problem drinkers.  However, with all the efforts that aneka outlines, they can stop drinking; and, some can even go back to social drinking.  But, there are some of us for whom the addiction goes even deeper. 

    It has been discovered medically that alcoholism is a disease - an alcoholic's body does not handle alcohol in the same manner that non-drinkers or social drinkers do.  Alcoholics can never be cured - no matter how long it has been since our last drink, once we drink again we will be back where we were (or worse) within 6 months.

    There is only way to stop the progression of this disease; and, that is to stop drinking entirely.

    I agree with pippap.  We cannot take 'just one drink' as other non-alcoholic friends. Some can take it or leave it.  But with an alcoholic, once you take that first drink, it's a step to more & more.  I know from experience.  You start out thinking, "oh, I can drink a glass of wine with dinner"  and you may do it. Then next time, well, that wasn't so bad...I can drink socially. Then it slowly becomes a gradual increase to consume more & more over a period of time. Then the body-mind connection associates that 'relaxed feeling' with the alcohol, so the body wants it more.  Eventually, it turns into a real problem again. Believe me, I know.

    Addiction like any other disorder has multiple causes. But the most useful theory of addictions in my view and that of most psychologists and psychiatrists who treat addicts is the self-medication hypothesis. See my hubpage or sefl-med-hypothesis.tripod.com for more explanation. The leading researcher in the field of addiction, Prof. David Duncan, describes all addictions as being due to negative reinforcement, which occurs when a drug is used to provide relief from some ongoing state of psychological distress.

    I believe people drink  because they are in pain and have no other way, they think, to relieve the pain, the source of which is usually isolation and/or grief.

    The pain, however, might be so deep that a person might not be in touch with it.

    According to me, while watching other people drinking the drinks. After drinking one time, they get addicted towards it and cant able to stop drinking that’s it. Many people first just drink for show off but they get addicted to drink afterwards
