Trying to cut back on drinking? Achieving sobriety is a difficult process for those who have Alcohol Use Disorder(AUD). NY AA meetings are held for people to help them stay sober. A person that develops AUD almost completely loses their ability to control their drinking. Risk factors for a person to suffer from AUD could be their alcohol intake frequency, their age, family history of alcoholism, the presence of mental health problems, and the perceived acceptability of alcohol use socially. A person who drinks more has a higher risk of developing AUD. The risk of excessive drinking goes beyond hangovers, alcohol poisoning, and addiction. Alcohol use disorder is also the leading cause of major health issues in the United States. It can cause liver damage, heart disease, brain damage, different injuries, depression, stroke, internal bleeding, sleep disorders, and kidney failure. The recommended treatments for those who are either on the mild stage of AUD or even severe stage of AUD include seeking counseling to help deal with root issues that cause the person to want to drink excessively, taking medications, detoxing, or denying yourself from alcohol intake, and attending AA Shirley meetings. If you feel like your drinking is getting out of hand, then it might be time to visit AA meetings in Shirley.
