Alcohol use problems range from occasional problem drinking to alcohol abuse to alcoholism. Alcoholism, also known as alcohol dependence, is a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. It is often progressive and fatal. Those affected experience: Physical dependence - withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety after stopping drinking; Tolerance - the need to drink greater amounts of alcohol to get "high"; Craving - a strong need, or urge, to drink; Loss of control - not being able to stop drinking once drinking has begun. The major health risks of alcoholism include liver disease, heart disease, certain forms of cancer, pancreatitis, and nervous system disorders. These conditions often develop gradually and may become evident only after long-term heavy drinking. The liver is particularly vulnerable to diseases related to heavy drinking, most commonly, alcoholic hepatitis (inflammation) and cirrhosis (scarring of the liver). Women tend to be more sensitive to the effects of alcohol and may develop alcohol-related health problems sooner and after consuming less alcohol than men do.
