Forms of Alcohol

Alcohol, also known as ethanol or ethyl alcohol, is what’s found in liquor, beer, wine, and other spirits that causes drunkenness.

It is formed when yeast breaks down the liquid’s sugars without oxygen, otherwise known as fermenting. Alcohol becomes a sedative hypnotic drug that depresses the body’s central nervous system when consumed at high doses. However it can act as a stimulant in lower doses.

 

Other Forms of Alcohol to Know

Today, there are other forms of alcohol out there that are being abused. It’s important to know about these other forms so that you can be aware of possible abuse.

Palcohol

Palcohol is a powdered form of alcohol. It is then mixed with a liquid such as water or a mixer to create an alcoholic drink. Usually, one packet of this powder is equal to a single alcoholic drink. It’s manufactured and sold by a company called Lipsmark, who created the product in a number of flavors such as rum, vodka, lemon drop, cosmopolitan, and margarita. While this product isn’t widely available and is banned in 35 states, it can be purchased online.

Hand Sanitizer to Get Drunk

Hand sanitizer is made of ethyl alcohol. This contributes to over 65% of it’s formula, equating to 120 proof alcohol. Teenagers have been drinking bottles of hand sanitizer to get intoxicated, and there have been several reports of these teens ending up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning after doing so.

 

Is Alcohol Addictive?

Alcohol is indeed addictive. But what makes it so?

When someone drinks alcohol, the brain naturally releases some feel-good opioids called endorphins. A heavy drinker may actually release more endorphins when drinking the same amount as a light drinker, which means that the experience is even more pleasurable. Medical researchers believe that those heavy drinkers who are releasing more natural opioids with alcohol are more likely to want to drink more. It’s more likely they will become an alcoholic because of this effect.

While this chemical process in the brain contributes to the addictive nature of alcohol, there’s a lot more that goes into play as well. In addition to the physical factors that take place in the drinker’s brain, there are also psychological factors that can impact one’s susceptibility to addiction. These include:

  • Learned behavior
  • Maturity
  • Family history
    Stress
  • Mental health disorders

 

Why Is Alcohol Legal?

With the problem of alcoholism still present in the United States, why has alcohol never been considered a “gateway drug” as many other substances have? Many people have wondered why, even with alcohol’s death toll and risk of abuse, it remains legal. With all the negative consequences it brings, why has alcohol become so normalized and remained legal since prohibition?

Alcohol is a substance that tends to stimulate self-deprecating and aggressive behavior. It has a way of lowering personal inhibitions and contributing to car accidents and even domestic violence rates. With all of these negative repercussions, why is alcohol so normalized in our society today?

While we do have programs like MADD and helpful PSAs about drinking and driving, there’s hardly any messaging that is simply against the consumption of alcohol. What are the reasons for this?

 

Alcohol: As a Vice

As humans, we’re prone to vices. Alcohol is a popular vice in today’s culture. It’s a great way to take the edge off after a bad day, and people seem to temporarily feel better after simply drinking the beverage.

Whether alcoholic or not, most people view alcohol as part of social culture. This makes it very socially acceptable. It’s easier to pass off as alcohol abuse as “normal” even when abuse is very evident.

 

Alcohol: As a Money Maker

With alcohol’s powers to lower inhibitions, businesses have seen a great opportunity to take advantage of the consumer and exacerbate addictive and poor tendencies. When someone is drinking, they are stimulating the economy. Someone who has a drink becomes more likely to order a second, and with each drink the draw continues. Businesses draw on these psychological dependencies to sell.

While it may be too far to say that our nation should reinstate prohibition, it’s clear that there are changes that need to be made in the overall attitude around drinking, especially social drinking. The simple fact that the substance can make the user feel invincible shows us why it’s still so accepted. The individual temporarily benefits from drinking, and large corporations benefit despite all the brash decisions made while intoxicated.

The first step towards changing alcohol culture is understanding how it got to where it is. By remaining educated and educating others, our social attitudes towards alcohol can change.

 

How Is Alcohol Abused?

It’s not always easy to tell when a loved one has crossed the line from casual social drinking to problem drinking. Our culture promotes drinking and normalizes it to the point that someone could easily think they are an average drinker. All the while, they are exhibiting destructive alcoholic behaviors and contributing to their own downfall.

If someone begins to consume alcohol to cope with the difficulties of life or to avoid or numb bad feelings, that marks the beginning of dangerous territory. When they begin to feel guilt related to drinking, hide their drinking, require a drink to relax, or regularly drink more than was intended, something should be done.

Problems with alcohol have a way of sneaking up on someone, so being aware of the warning signs and recognizing the problem before it gets out of control is crucial. At New Life House, we can treat abuse before it becomes a larger problem. Contact us to learn more about our facility and what we do.

 

Teens Get Drunk Without Drinking

In addition to the typical route of alcohol abuse, there are also new ways of abuse that have become especially popular among teenagers that don’t require any drinking at all.

Children and teens, especially, are finding new ways to receive the effects of being drunk without being detected by adults. It’s common for them to find ways to disguise the smell, get drunk away from their parents often in public places and find unorthodox methods to become intoxicated. While some of these creative methods are, for the most part, no worse than other drinking methods, some have become more and more dangerous.

 

Get Drunk Without A Drink

New methods such as inhaling, alcohol-infused food, or even inserting alcohol into the body are just a few ways these kids are getting drunk without taking a sip of alcohol.

 

  • Inhaling – There are many different ways to turn liquid alcohol into vapor. One method includes pouring alcohol on dry ice, then inhaling the vapor with a straw. An alternative method includes pumping air into an alcohol bottle through the cork with a bicycle pump and inhaling the vapor that is released as air is pumped into it.

 

  • Alcohol-soaked items – As hard as it is to believe, some teenagers soak tampons in alcohol (usually vodka) and then insert it either vaginally or rectally in order for the alcohol to become absorbed in the bloodstream. This method is seriously dangerous, as the body is capable of absorbing too much without giving the individual the ability to throw up for relief.

 

  • Straight In the Eye – Another way to get drunk quickly is by pouring small amounts of alcohol directly into their eye. Medical professionals believe that only a small amount of alcohol can even possibly be absorbed into the eye, so getting too drunk is unlikely. However, this method is extremely dangerous as it causes damage to the top layer of the eye.

 

  • Alcohol-Soaked Food – Fruit and candy are two common food items that have commonly been used to absorb alcohol. Recent reports show that teenagers have been bringing alcohol-soaked gummy bears to school in order to get drunk in class. The danger of this is that the individual consumer does not know how much alcohol they are ingesting, which could lead to over intoxication.

 

  • Hand Sanitizer – Hand sanitizer contains alcohol and can be consumed to get drunk. This is very dangerous and leads to many hospitalizations. Read more about hand sanitizer abuse above.

 

While these are all common methods teens employ to get drunk undetected, these could also be ways that addicts hide their use. If you know someone that is going to extreme lengths to ensure their drinking habits aren’t known, you should seek help as soon as possible.

If you need information about how to get your loved one away from dangerous abuse, don’t hesitate to call us at (888) 357 -7577. New Life House is here to help.

 

What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Alcohol Abuse?

It’s important to keep a caring eye out for your loved ones that you feel are in dangerous territory of becoming an alcoholic. Alcohol can still be dangerous even to those who aren’t addicted.

Excuses of an Alcoholic

While alcohol can bring the downfall of any individual, not just an addict, it is far more dangerous as an addiction and carries more consequences. Many people who engage in alcoholic behavior will try to justify it and give excuses in order to deflect from their problem. If someone you love begins making excuses for their drinking, it should be a tip-off that they might have a problem with their relationship with alcohol.

Here are the top 10 excuses you may hear:

    • It makes me more successful. Many people actually begin to believe that alcohol makes them better, faster, and stronger. Yet, when they are sober they will realize how much in-tune they are with their work and career goals.
    • It makes me social. Social anxiety can easily be soothed with a drink or two, but it does nothing to actually help the core issue. It only provides a temporary fix, allowing the real problem to fester and grow without proper treatment.
    • It’s not hurting anyone. This is a selfish lie an alcoholic will tell to try to get concerned loved ones off their back. Anyone with a realistic view will be able to tell that alcoholism hurts those you love.
    • Everyone else does it. This is a dangerous one, because society really does encourage constant social drinking. The truth is that, being an alcoholic is not normal. If they were drinking like most people, they’d be able to stop after just one.
    • If you had my problems, you’d understand. This is a clear sign the individual doesn’t recognize how much worse drinking can make your problems. Alcohol is usually just a form of self-medication when this line is used.
    • I’m not addicted. I can stop at any time. This is an example of denial. If this is really true, challenge the person to actually try stopping.
    • I work hard, I deserve it. Rewarding one’s self with drugs or alcohol is not a joyful or healthy reward.
    • It helps my mental health problems. If someone admits to having mental health problems and using alcohol to try to fix them, it’s a clear indication that they need professional mental health treatment.
    • It makes me creative. Many creatives will go through this, thinking that their creativity blossoms while intoxicated. The truth is, however, that once they become sober, they will objectively measure their work and will realize that their performance is higher when sober. The idea that they can’t create without a substance is something they learned otherwise.
    • I’m not [insert other person’s name], they have the real problem. Every alcoholic will get a case of the “yets.” This means they will say they haven’t don’t a number of terrible things, but to anyone listening with a clear mind, there’s a “yet” tacked on to the end of each statement. Eventually, these “yets” will come into fruition, and the alcoholic may find new “yets” to fill their places.

 

Alcoholism’s Many Faces

Alcoholism doesn’t always start with binge drinking and a following addiction. In fact, it’s more common for addictive personality traits to show up early on in life and slowly develop into drinking habits.

For example, one woman first began exhibiting addictive personality traits as a young child when her parents purchased her a gaming console. As soon as she got it, she became obsessed with it and hardly ever stopped playing except when she had to for school or meals. It became such a problem that she actually needed surgery from keeping her finger in the same position on the controller for so long.

Then, in high school, as social media began to rise, she would spend hours online in chat rooms and on her social media profiles, wasting the day away and not realizing all the time she invested in it until it was dark out.

These habits show the way her disease of addiction centers in her mind. It found different ways to come out, through gaming and then through social media, until it eventually found a drink. After eventually finding sobriety from alcohol, she was finally able to see the addictive nature of so many other things in her life. Even healthy taskss like working out or cleaning she committed to with undying devotion.

Addiction comes in many forms, and alcoholism is often one of it’s most obvious manifestations. Being able to notice these signs before alcohol comes in the picture is a great way to get ahead of the problem.

At New Life House, we can provide treatment for addictive tendencies at every stage of addiction. Call us today to learn more about our recovery treatment.

 

10 Signs You May Know an Alcoholic

It’s not always easy to tell if someone you love is an alcoholic, but these are 10 of the most typical signs that you know someone with an alcohol problem:

  • They think and talk about alcohol a lot. If someone speaks about alcohol often and it seems to be on their mind much of the time, it may be a sign that it’s occupying a large space in their mind due to addiction.
  • They drink more than they planned. If they go out for a drink or two and wind up closing down the place, that could be a sign of a real problem.
  • They label themselves as a social drinker. This is an easy way out of any criticism on someone’s drinking behavior. It puts a harmless-seeming label on their behaviors to attempt to excuse harmful behaviors.
  • They avoid things in favor of drinking. Giving up past hobbies in favor of parties or drinking at home is a dangerous red flag of addiction.
  • They are surrounded by friends who frequently drink. Addictive behavior can get fueled by social drinking. Habits in a large group of people are often shared, as people enable one another.
  • They still drink even after bad experiences. If someone you love chooses to drink immediately after a bad hangover, a fight with a loved one, or losing a friend over drinking, there might be a problem.
  • They feel sick when they stop drinking. Withdrawal symptoms that creep up when someone stops drinking indicate that their body has clearly become dependent upon the substance.
  • They feel out of control. A feeling of no control often indicates that the addiction has taken over control in their life.
  • They worry about their drinking, openly or secretly. Whether they worry about it openly or seem to worry about it secretly, the feeling of worry about their behavior indicates that their inner voice is trying to tell them something.
  • They don’t think they can quit. If the idea of living without alcohol seems impossible, they need outside help to get sober as soon as possible.

At New Life House, we’re familiar with these 10 signs. We can treat the abuser in your life, and show them that it is possible to quit. Call us today to learn more about how we treat these 10 signs of abuse.

 

What Is Alcohol Poisoning?

Alcohol poisoning occurs when someone consumes too much alcohol at one time. It can impact anyone regardless of their age, gender, tolerance, or weight, and can cause severe injury or death.

Alcohol poisoning is what happens when someone drinks too much alcohol for the body to process fast enough. Things such as tolerance, weight, and gender come into play to affect someone’s personal limit of alcohol consumption, so there’s no one-size-fits all amount that will lead to alcohol poisoning. It’s mostly coupled with binge drinking, however.

The most commonly seen symptoms of alcohol poisoning include:

  • Unresponsiveness
  • Irregular breathing
  • Clammy or blue-tinged skin
  • Seizures
  • Vomiting
  • Confusion
  • Incoherency
  • Comatose

 

How to Help Someone Who Has Alcohol Poisoning

Before we get into how you can help someone who’s suffering from alcohol poisoning, let’s quickly go over a short list of the things you should absolutely not do.

These include:

  • Letting them keep drinking
  • Giving them coffee or caffeine to become more “awake,” as it will increase their dehydration
  • Helping them vomit, as it could cause them to choke
  • Putting them in a cold shower, as it could lead to hypothermia
  • Telling them to sleep it off, as their BAC can rise even while asleep

So, what should someone do if they believe someone else to be experiencing alcohol poisoning?

  • Get help immediately. The most important thing to do if someone is experiencing the symptoms of alcohol poisoning is calling professional help and medical attention. They will need medical supervision until the symptoms fully resolve, and they may also require things like oxygen therapy, IV fluids, stomach pumping, or intubation. Calling 911 or getting them to a hospital as soon as possible is the best thing anyone can do for them.

If a young man you love has recently recovered from an alcohol poisoning incident, it might be a good time to offer them treatment at a sober living facility like New Life House. Call us to set up an appointment.

 

Alcohol in The Body

Alcohol can take a while to fully filter through your body, but it can be detectable in a number of ways after the drinking is over:

  • Alcohol via Breathalyzer: The rate at which the BAC level will be broken down depends on the individual’s’ consumption and beginning BAC level. Breathalyzers are able to tell when someone is currently intoxicated, but they are not an accurate measure of alcohol use over a longer period of time.
  • Alcohol via Urine: Alcohol’s length of stay in the urine is dependent upon weight, alcohol consumed, gender, age, and food digested by the individual. Alcohol can still be detected in the urine for up to 48 hours after consumption. The EtG Urine Alcohol test is a way to detect alcohol in the urine up to 3-4 days after consumption. This is often known as the “80 hour test.”
  • Alcohol via Blood: Blood test results will vary based on the components mentioned above. While it’s not effective in measuring blood alcohol levels after a couple hours, it can accurately tell if someone is currently intoxicated or was recently intoxicated
  • Alcohol via Hair: This can last in the hair for up to three months after consumption, and is one of the most accurate methods of testing

An abuser might not be aware of alcohol’s affects on their body. Are you concerned about a loved one showing signs of abuse, alcohol poisoning, or poor addiction-driven behaviors? Call us immediately for assistance at (888) 357-7577.

 

What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Withdrawal?

If someone has an alcohol problem and their body has become dependent or addicted to alcohol, they will likely experience withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop drinking.

 

What is Alcohol Withdrawal?

This can potentially be a life-threatening condition that one experiences when ceasing or greatly reducing their intake of alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms can be felt within just hours of the very last drink, and can be felt for weeks after. Scope and severity of symptoms vary on a case-by-case basis, but some symptoms are commonly experienced.

 

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

The most common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Seizures
  • Sweating
  • Nightmares
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Shaky extremities
  • Nightmares
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium Tremens – DT is a common condition associated with this kind of withdrawal characterized by shaking, high anxiety, hallucinations, seizures, and disorientation.
  • Hypertension

 

Withdrawal can be managed with benzodiazepines under the close care of a physician. Sedation drugs such as Valium and Ativan as well as antipsychotics are often given in order to prevent mortality. A supportive and controlled environment is also extremely important. This will help fight the strong urges to drink again.

Hospitals or sober living communities are critical for treating alcohol withdrawal. Contact us today to learn more about how we monitor and treat this condition.

 

What Is the 12 Step Approach?

The 12 Step approach is a common treatment method for those who are addicted to alcohol.

Some of the key components to this form of treatment include:

  • Sponsor – A sponsor is an individual who has also gone through the 12 step process and has completed it. A sponsor will work closely with someone going through the process to give them life guidance through moments of temptation. This relationship allows for a third party to intervene without crossing family or relationship boundaries. A sponsor can bring accountability to the individual. They will keep them focused on their alcohol addiction recovery.
  • Holistic Approach – There’s also a very holistic nature to this approach, which looks at behavioral problems, self esteem issues, lack of integrity, motivation, unhealthy living and anything else that has contributed ultimately to the alcohol problem. Through each step, the individual can relearn healthy behaviors and treat their internal issues along the way. They are taught how to manage their issues, boost self-esteem, and value their integrity.
  • Transformation Tracking – One of the best things about this kind of program is tracking treatment progress. People in the program will each be at their own pace. The abuser will see themselves slowly change as they make their way through each step. Seeing success in others motivates those in the first couple of steps to keep going.
  • Fellowship – The fellowship and community created in this kind of program lasts beyond the final step. Addicts and former addicts alike can all attend meetings after recovery. This keeps the abuser’s focus on recovery active after life in a sober living community.

 

Does the 12 Step Approach Work?

There’s a lot of criticism surrounding 12 step programs. Common complaints that may be heard include:

  • Lack of Data – Many people show that there is still no scientific data that prove this 12-step method works. While there’s not much hard evidence to support its success, there’s also just a lack of data in general. There are often no sign-in sheets or role calls at meetings, and little data collected after someone stops attending meetings. AA was not created as a scientific method of recovery, but rather as a holistic healing process that millions of people have found respite and hope through over the years.
  • Too Much God Talk – There’s definitely an influence of Judeo-Christian religion in Alcoholics Anonymous. While not everyone will resonate with these religious references, they are a part of the program’s fabric because its founders both found sobriety in part through creating a relationship with God. While there is nothing pushed on the attendees as far as religion goes, some people may be uncomfortable with this aspect of the program.
  • Losers Attend AA – The stigma that only “losers” go to AA is far from the truth. This is often just an excuse for addicts not to attend. There is no shame in getting help. In fact, there is glory in it.

The thing about a 12-step program, or any program in general, is that it will only work for you if you work for them. One will only get out what they put in, so of course it may be more successful for some than it is for others.

At New Life House, we can answer any questions you may have about our use of the 12 step program and why we believe it works. Contact us today to learn more.

 

What Is Moderation Management?

Moderation management is a term you may have heard. It’s been used for nearly 20 years, yet it’s still shrouded in some mystery as to what it is. So, what is it? How does it compare to other programs of recovery?

This is a program that’s geared towards “problem drinkers” rather than full-out alcoholics. This program leaves the decision or abstention or moderation up to the individual. It moves away from calling its members alcoholics in order to de-stigmatize it.

MM has a bit of a dark past, as it’s founder, in 2012, fell off the wagon after realizing she could not drink in moderation after all. She then returned to AA without success, drove drunk and ended up killing two people in a car accident.

Since then, it’s found a new angle of calling out “excessive drinking” as both a public health issue and an individual problem that is not being properly addressed.

While MM seems to have a lot of positive aspects to it, more than 30% of its members end up reverting back to an abstinence program such as AA. Of course, the experience is up to the individual and some people may be able to thrive in this kind of environment.

 

Does Drinking in Moderation Work for Alcoholics?

For most alcoholics who have tried to simply drink in moderation, they have found it impossible. Changing small things like the kind of alcohol consumed, when they consume it, who they consume it around, or trying to reduce consumption doesn’t seem to really work out in the long run. This is because true alcoholics lose the ability to find moderation in something they are addicted to.

In the Alcoholics Anonymous book, there is a passage that explains that no one wants to admit they are a real alcoholic. This is why many alcoholics first try in vain to simply drink like other people. But, when alcoholics drink, they surrender control to the alcohol. They cannot behave or drink like other people.

Instead of looking to Moderation Management, seek an intensive treatment. You can start by taking the AA quiz, “Are you an alcoholic?” to get an objective read on your situation. From there, you can find outpatient or inpatient programs to help you get sober and stay sober. After finding sobriety, it can be tough to transition back into everyday life. Spending some time at New Life House is a great way to smooth over that transition surrounded by a community of like-minded individuals.

 

Is Alcoholism a Disease?

There are differing opinions about alcoholism and addiction in general. While having varying opinions is fine, it’s important to be aware of the medical facts.

In 1958, The American Medical Association officially recognized alcoholism to be a real disease. Symptoms required for diagnosis include:

  • Loss of control – not being able to stop drinking
  • Craving – strong urges to drink
  • Dependence – physical withdrawal symptoms occur after stopping drinking
  • Tolerance – the individual needs higher amounts to get desired effect

 

Contrary to what many people still think, alcoholism isn’t a character flaw or a choice. It doesn’t mean the person lacks in morals or self-control. It is, just like any respiratory infection or physical diagnosis, a disease.

Others believe that addiction to alcohol is a symptom of a greater addictive issue. The debate on whether alcoholism is a symptom or the disease itself is still going strong, and there are different treatment methods available that suit each train of thought closely.

 

Tips to Prevent Alcohol Addiction Relapse

Once someone has found sobriety after battling alcoholism, the battle is still not fully won. Relapse is still a possibility, and the individual must make decisions every single day that keep them on the sober route and away from their vices.

There are some tips a newly sober individual can incorporate to help prevent alcohol abuse relapse. These include:

  • Staying busy. Cravings often return when someone is bored. Staying busy is a great way to keep an idle mind occupied. A recovering alcoholic can stay busy by picking up an old hobby, finding a new side hustle to try, or just filling in the gaps with time spent with friends and supportive family.
  • Eating healthy and exercising. Eating healthy and staying active is a great way to both feel busy and create healthy lifestyle changes. The endorphins brought on by exercise will help anyone feel good and will actively fight depression often felt after withdrawal. Eating healthy foods will bring about a feeling of wellness on the inside and out. This will reduce the urge to ruin the progress with alcohol.
  • Companionship. Creating positive social connections with uplifting and supportive individuals can help anyone struggling keep at it. Good friends will reduce temptation and be there to help the addict fight. Finding friends with similar hobbies will keep the addict busy with supportive relationships.
  • Remaining positive. Practicing gratitude and remaining positive for their current situation is an important thing for any recovering alcoholic to do. Therapy is a great way to strengthen anyone’s positivity muscles.
  • Curating a good environment. If someone that is newly sober reverts back to their same environment, friends, and routines, it greatly increases the chances of relapse. Transitioning back into regular life via spending time at a sober living community is a great way to rewire the way one thinks about sober living.

At New Life House, we encourage addicts to recover by relying on the above coping mechanisms. Learn how we can help build a better life for the abuser in your life by getting in touch with us today.

 

Does Relapse Equal Failure?

Relapse feels like failure for many people. While it may be a step back, it doesn’t mean the journey is over or that all is lost. Relapse, in truth, happens to many people who are recovering and while it may make it harder for them to get back on the train to sobriety, it doesn’t make it impossible.

 

Why Does Relapse Happen in the First Place?

There are many reasons why someone gives into their addiction after becoming sober. These may include:

  • They went straight from rehab back to their normal routine.
  • They did not consider necessary after care once rehab concluded.
  • They were not committed.
  • They did not have the intention of staying sober, but rather only did it to appease loved ones.
  • There is an additional mental health problem.
  • They have unrealistic expectations of recovery.
  • They don’t break old patterns and harmful relationships.
  • They isolate themselves in order to get sober.
  • They go too far too fast.

 

It’s important to recognize that relapse does happen. It’s not the end of the world. It doesn’t have to happen again, however. It is not inevitable for every individual.

Rather than finding shame in replase, it’s more important to find forgiveness for one’s self and find motivation to get back to a sober place. Simply moving forward is the best way to react after falling off the wagon. Getting back on and trying again is the only way to succeed.

At New Life House, we work with both new addicts and those prone to relapse. We offer a safe space for addicts to separate themselves from their addiction and re-focus on recovery. Contact us today to learn more about how we work with relapsed abusers.
