Let's take a careful look at these questions. How can you justify if you're a problem drinker? Do you drink till you get drunk? Do you drink more than your associates or colleagues? Does getting drunk serve a relief when you're under pressure?  

Do you feel ashamed by your actions after a few drinks? Do you have blackouts related to your drinking habit? How difficult is it putting a stop or limit to drinking? Do your friends tell you that you're addicted to drinking?



Take a look at a dozen myths about drinking which will help you in having a better understanding about addiction related to alcohol.

Myth 1 The major substance abuse problem is drugs within the Nation. 

Truth: True. The biggest drug constraint is alcohol abuse which acts as a depressant on the Central Nervous System. Greater number of people are addicted to alcohol unlike heroin, Indian hemp etc. 

Myth 2 People get drunk or sick from integrated drinks.

Truth: Multiple choices for intake of drinks do not really matter. The problem is excessive ingestion of alcohol into the body system.

Myth 3 One cannot become alcoholic or get drunk when beer is only your choice.

Truth: You may need to drink more wine or beer than hard liquor due to the little effect of beer but these effects are same. The level of alcohol in the blood irrespective of the source of alcohol and amount will be the same after drinking.



Myth 4 Fatal accidents related to alcohol consumption prior to highway are only 25%.

Truth: Fatal highway accidents related to alcohol intake is 50% with more percentage of non-fatal accidents.

Myth 5 Women are not usually alcoholic.

Truth: Recently, approximately 30% of women are alcoholics.

Myth 6 Alcohol keeps you warm and serves as a good insulation prior to football games.

Truth: No. Alcohol make you to lose your body's natural heat and expands your blood vessels.

Myth 7 “Occasional” drinkers don't become alcoholic.

Truth: Not True. Whether one drink with others or alone, you can become dependent on drink and get drunk.

Myth 8 People are happier when they have taken alcohol. 

Truth: Disability or illness are likely the same thing with drunkenness leaving people with hostility as they tend to be less sober. Murder and suicide cases recorded around the world are alcohol-related.



Myth 9 An unborn child is not affected by few drinks.

Truth: Wrong. According to research about 2-4 drinks taken on daily basis (in a 9-month pregnancy) leads to 10% risk of abnormality. Thus, 10 drinks on any one day leads to 75% risk of having an abnormal child. 

Myth 10 You'll get sober quickly after taking a cold shower or drinking coffee.

Truth: The oxidation of alcohol in the body takes place in a constant rate leading to the burning of alcohol by the liver at 1/2 ounce of alcohol. Getting sober works hand-in-hand with time.

Myth 11 One can drive better and more relaxed after drinking.

Truth: Research shows that after 2-4 drinks, the abilities of professional drivers are questionable prior to judgement which is affected by alcohol. 

Myth 12 The best remedy for hangover is a Bloody Mary in the morning.

Truth: Hangover has no “cure” and intake of alcohol in the morning is liable to produce intoxication thereafter since the absorption are not retarded due to insufficient food in the stomach.
