Alcohol such as Vodka is quite enticing as it causes intoxication. In moderation, a drink or two of Vodka occasionally could potentially be cause for a great time, however, with all alcohol, Vodka can cause problems rather quickly if addiction and irresponsibly set it.
Alcohol addiction can set in quite quickly. The most common signs of alcohol addiction are restlessness that only alcohol can calm, paranoia, anger, and severe flu-like symptoms when one goes too long without a drink. The negative effects of Vodka are numerous and can affect a person whether they admit to being addicted or not.
People that drink heavily often assume that any problem with alcohol is a problem with their own behaviors. If the individual is not an abusive drunk, for instance, they assume that their bodies are the only thing they are punishing, not their families.
But the truth about heavy drinking is that just because the individual may not be a dangerous drunk does not mean they are not severely negatively impacting their relationships. Alcohol effects on relationships go much deeper, and the alcoholic can cause rifts between themselves and others.
Alcohol causes people to become less sensitive to the feelings of others. Alcohol makes it difficult for people to distinguish between the other person’s emotions, and thus they may make incorrect judgments that negatively impact their relationship with the other person.
Time is an issue as well. Drinking is not a “one and done” type of activity. It takes hours out of your day – hours that you could be spending with a partner. Instead, that lack of time can cause you to drift apart emotionally.
There is evidence that non-alcoholic partners of individuals with alcohol dependence start to become addicted to taking care of their alcoholic partner, causing them additional grief and unfairly putting them in a situation they will have difficulty breaking free from.
Alcoholism causes a change in the individual’s personality over time. If you have a relationship with someone, and you start to show signs of changing, there is always a chance that your partner will not like the new you.
