Long term alcohol abuse can have dangerous effects on an individual and their loved ones. Alcohol dependency is defined as having a psychological or physical reliance on alcohol. An alcohol dependent individual may worry constantly about where the next drink will come from and demonstrate an inability to cease drinking once they begin. With long term use an individual can also become physically dependent on the substance, showing signs of withdrawal when they do not consume alcohol. Unmonitored alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous, leading to seizures, hallucinations and even death.
