The cause of alcoholism is still unknown. However, dependency on alcohol develops when you drink so much alcohol that chemical changes in the brain occur. These changes emphasize the pleasurable feelings that result when you drink alcohol. These feelings cause an increased desire to drink, even if it causes harm. Alcoholism typically develops gradually over time.

Known risk factors for alcoholism include having:
more than 15 drinks a week if you are male
more than 12 drinks a week if you are female
more than five drinks per occasion at least once a week (binge drinking)
a parent with alcoholism
a mental health problem, such as depression, anxiety, or schizophrenia

You may also be at a greater risk for alcoholism if you:
are a young adult experiencing peer pressure
have low self-esteem
experience a high level of stress
live in a family or culture where alcohol use is common and accepted
