Alcoholism, also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD),is, broadly, any drinking of alcohol that results in mental or physical health problems.The disorder was previously divided into two types: alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence. In a medical context, alcoholism is said to exist when two or more of the following conditions are present: a person drinks large amounts of alcohol over a long time period, has difficulty cutting down, acquiring and drinking alcohol takes up a great deal of time, alcohol is strongly desired, usage results in not fulfilling responsibilities, usage results in social problems, usage results in health problems, usage results in risky situations, withdrawal occurs when stopping, and alcohol tolerance has occurred with use Alcohol use can affect all parts of the body, but it particularly affects the brain, heart, liver, pancreas and immune system Alcoholism can result in mental illnessdelirium tremensWernicke–Korsakoff syndromeirregular heartbeat, an impaired immune response, liver cirrhosis and increased cancer risk.Drinking during pregnancy can result in fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. Women are generally more sensitive than men to the harmful effects of alcohol, primarily due to their smaller body weight, lower capacity to metabolize alcohol, and higher proportion of body fat.

Environmental factors and genetics are two components associated with alcoholism, with about half the risk attributed to each.Someone with a parent or sibling with alcoholism is three to four times more likely to become an alcoholic themselves.Environmental factors include social, cultural and behavioral influences. High stress levels and anxiety, as well as alcohol's inexpensive cost and easy accessibility, increase the risk.People may continue to drink partly to prevent or improve symptoms of withdrawal.After a person stops drinking alcohol, they may experience a low level of withdrawal lasting for months. Medically, alcoholism is considered both a physical and mental illness.Questionnaires and certain blood tests may detect possible alcoholism. Further information is then collected to confirm the diagnosis
