There are lots of various kinds of alcoholics nowadays. There are the ‘Functioning’ alcoholics, often the business people of corporate America who consume to drown their stresses but are able to carry on fulfilling employment. There are the ‘Falling down dead’ alcoholics who drink so much every day they don’t even sound right in their speech or their actions all of the time. And then there is the ‘Periodic’ alcoholic. The ‘Periodic’ alcohol is one of the most frightening alcoholics of.
‘Periodic’ alcoholics may also be referred to as ‘binge’ alcoholics or ‘bingers.’ These are the alcoholics that show alcoholic behaviors and actions for specific periods of time but then clean up their act for another extended period of time in which they are able to influence a lot of people that they do not have a drinking problem. And although they might not be drinking, they still have that alcoholic switch just waiting to be activated and wreak havoc.
A ‘occasional’ alcoholic can easily fool you into thinking they’re secure and together as they can go months if not over a year without touching one drop of alcohol. They can appear totally in control, and then they’ll start drinking. And since they refrain from alcohol for way too long, they often lose complete control once they finally do start drinking again which could end up in a few of the worst alcoholic behaviors and incidents conceivable.
The ‘regular’ alcoholic isn’t someone who has accomplished sobriety but sometimes relapses. A regular alcoholic for one of the most part, does not think they’re alcoholic. It’s maybe not unusual to get a periodic to go months without incident and then take one drink. Any particular one drink allows the alcoholism free again for however long it lasts. A ‘occasional’ alcoholic remains the full alcoholic until they do the task to achieve consistent sobriety and remain in sobriety.
The ‘periodic’ alcohol may be incredibly dangerous to themselves and the others because when they drink they drink in great amounts that severely affect their ability to function. As oppose to a ‘functioning’ alcoholic who usually gets mildly drunk then sobers around function, a ‘periodic’ alcoholic may drink themselves into stupors, unconsciousness, and occasionally even into death. ‘Periodic’ alcoholics often drink such large amounts that they:
* Become severe
* Make dangerous
* Cause incidents
* Suffer alcohol poisoning
* Suffer liver failure
* Asphyxiate independently vomit, being too drunk to wake-up and release
The ‘Periodic’ alcoholic is a risk to themselves and the others. Although they may appear perfectly healthy and normal to many people around them, a ‘occasional’ alcoholic can be a ticking time-bomb to another episode of extreme drinking.
