If someone is able to function properly, being an alcoholic doesn’t mean there is no risk involved. Alcoholism is a terrible disease with a deadly end.
THE SIGNS OF A FUNCTIONING ALCOHOLIC ARE MENTIONED BELOW. IF SOMEONE SHOWS THESE SIGNS, THEY MAY BE AFFECTED:
1. THEY TAKE ALCOHOL INSTEAD OF FOOD
Often, functioning alcoholics take their drinks as a meal. They have literally no interest in food. They consume alcohol at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and don’t eat very much actual food. The alcoholic seems to enjoy drinking more than the average person, and tends to like a wide variety of alcoholic beverages.
2. RARE HANGOVER
Taking alcohol on a regular basis for a long time increases dependency on alcohol. It’s constantly in the blood of the alcoholic and never fully leaves their body. High-functioning addicts can easily binge drink without waking up with a hangover.
3. IRRITABILITY WITHOUT ALCOHOL
Psychologically, the alcoholic depends on alcohol. He becomes restless and irritable if he is asked to stay away from it for a day or two. When they are asked to abstain from it or can’t have at any time of the day, they become nervous, depressed and uncomfortable. They have a negative reaction in the body because of the sedative effects of alcohol. This abrupt abstinence causes anxiety, shaking, palpitations and sweating.
