Beer is an alcoholic drink that specifically has ethyl alcohol or ethanol. Although it is possible to become addicted to beer, this depends on several different things. In addition, the alcohol content of beer is a lot lower than other alcoholic drinks. Still, there is enough alcohol in beer to adversely affect your central nervous system, causing drowsiness, faintness, dizziness, and imbalance. It can also induce nausea, vomiting, passing out, complete inhibition, and aggressiveness. Drinking too much can even lead to alcohol poisoning.
Men can drink a little more than women without danger of addiction. For men, the limit is 15 drinks. For women, it’s 12. Occasional drinking is probably safe, but more and more people are becoming susceptible to alcoholism all the time. So do you want to risk that you’re one of the susceptible millions? If you decide to go for it, be aware of the signs that you are one of the susceptible ones. First of all, know that if you are a woman with generally impulsive, antisocial behavior, you have a more likely shot at being susceptible.
Studies on the subject have shown that this is the case for this unfortunate demographic. Probably slightly less at risk but still greatly so are people who experience much stress, low self-esteem and mood disorder. Not having any of these problems does not mean that you aren’t susceptible. Let's say you do drink beer without these issues. If it does end up adversely affecting your job, family, health, etc., and you still don’t stop, chances are you’re a beer addict. If you become violent or irrationally defensive when confronted about it, you are probably an addict.
If drinking is more important to you than taking care of your personal hygiene or appearance, you are probably an addict. If you are drinking more and more just to get a harder to reach buzz, you are probably an addict. If you have decided to drink and do recognize that you have reached addiction, you may need to swallow your pride and seek help.
