Alcoholism refers to a disease where a person is dependent on alcohol. Almost synonymous with alcohol abuse, it s considered a form of substance dependence. Broadly speaking alcoholics can be divided into three categories 1) People who drink and exhibit anti-social, disruptive and pleasure seeking behaviour 2) People who are unable to go large periods without drinking and show withdrawal symptoms similar to drug-users when they cannot and 3) Binge drinkers who might not be dependent on alcohol but it refers to people who drink copious amounts on occasions just to get intoxicated.
