Alcohol abuse means having unhealthy or dangerous drinking habits, like drinking every day or drinking too much at a time. Signs of alcohol abuse include having problems at home (like arguments about drinking), at work (like being absent or not doing your job), or with the law (like getting arrested for drunk driving).
Over time, this abuse usually causes health problems, like high blood pressure, liver problems, or problems with digestion.
