Drinking alcohol from time to time is normal but when used in excess (including bingeing), alcohol consumption places all organ systems at risk. Over consumption is especially damaging to the brain, heart, pancreas, liver, and immune system. It can also impact sleep, mental health, and increases risk of cancer. But what exactly is alcoholism?

Alcoholism, alcohol misuse, or alcohol addiction are all examples of an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, which is considered a drug or substance. Alcohol is measured in units. One unit is 10ml of pure alcohol, or 8g. This is roughly half a pint of lower to normal-strength beer, lager, or cider, or equivalent to a 25ml shot of spirits. A small glass (125ml) of wine is 1.5 units. Both women and men are advised to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week to keep health risks low. Binge drinking is also a form of misuse so if you drink 14 units (or more) it is advisable to spread this over several days. When individuals are no longer able to regulate their drinking and have an uncontrollable desire for alcohol, they begin to misuse it which is very damaging and indicates a dependency, otherwise known as alcoholism.
