There are a few distinct symptoms that are telling signs of alcoholism. First, take a close look at your drinking habits. How often do you drink, and when you do drink, how much do you consume at a time? Do you find yourself craving alcohol when you aren't drinking? Do you pour yourself a drink first thing in the morning before you can do anything else? Do you forget about other responsibilities in favor of drinking? These could all be telltale signs of alcoholism.
Another sign that your alcoholic is if you find that you experience blackouts, mood swings, or temporary memory loss after drinking. If you drink alone in secret or find that you're hiding your drinking from family members, this may be a sign that you have a problem with alcohol. You may isolate yourself from family or loved ones and neglect important personal duties.
