Alcohol Addiction Questions

Hi doctors, my father is a alcoholic and after drinking continuously for 5-6 days, he attacks with severe stomach pain and vomiting. Then, he leaves the alcohol for about 2-3 months and restart after 2-3 months and suffer with the same. So, what should we do to stop him from drinking alcohol and possible reason for his stomach ache?

The stomach ache is due to excessive vomiting and tears in the wall of the food pipe. Also, given the long history, there is every possibility of having already developed liver cirrhosis. Alcohol deaddiction is a very gradual process and will involve counselling sessions to help cope with stressors which cause frequent relapse into alcoholic habit. Also medications will vary depending upon the will of the patient to quit. Deaddiction will be very difficult if your father himself doesn't intend to or is not himself convinced to quit in the first place.

And remember, binge drinking can be harmful even though the weekly total may not seem too high. For example, if you only drink once or twice a week but when you do you drink 4-5 pints of beer each time, or a bottle of wine each time, this is a risk to your health. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Treating alcohol addiction can be complex and challenging. In order for treatment to work, the person with an alcohol addiction must want to get sober. You can’t force them to stop drinking if they aren’t ready. Success depends on the person’s desire to get better. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. If you’ve lost the ability to control your use of alcohol, then you have an alcohol dependence, or alcoholism. Simply cutting back isn’t enough. It’s important to quit drinking and give up alcohol entirely. Your doctor can help you make this change. They may recommend detoxification, counseling, medication, or other treatment options. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

You need to meet with a doctor for the prescription. You cannot take this medication without being on a program for rehabilitation. The doctor has to monitor your compliance and the reactions on you. Please do not attempt it on your own because there is a dosage level that has to be given according to your condition. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of your habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.
