High functioning alcoholism is when someone who struggles with alcohol but does not experience the same discernable effects of drinking excessively. Many Veterans believe they know what alcoholism looks like; it is portrayed in the media as an uncontrollable need to drink, which leads to unpredictable behavior.
While those who struggle with alcohol addiction do have these issues, some are able to drink an excessive amount, and no one would be the wiser. Functioning alcoholics still receive the consequences of drinking too much or ‘binge drinking.’ They can participate in everyday activities. Though maintaining a job, relationships, and finances, they suffer from Alcohol Addiction.
Unusual Drinking Habits
Most people can’t tell that a functional alcoholic has a problem even when they are drinking socially. However, they might exhibit some signs through certain habits such as drinking more after saying they would only have one drink. They talk about drinking all the time and have a lot of social interaction with heavy drinkers. They also consistently finish alcoholic beverages, including other people’s drinks, and are unable to limit themselves at social events.
Other signs could include spending a lot of time buying/ drinking alcohol or recovering from drinking too much. Often Veterans will give up on prior responsibilities so that they can spend more time drinking. Eventually, when a Veteran stops drinking, they will experience withdrawal symptoms. This will make them want to drink again to prevent the uncomfortable and painful side effects.

10 percent of all police-reported motor vehicle crashes are alcohol-related.
Nearly two out of every five Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related traffic crash in their lifetime.
There are over 1.4 million arrests for driving while intoxicated each year and 780,000 of those are convicted.
About one-third of drunk-driving convictions and arrests involve offenders who have been arrested for the crime before.
Alcohol-related crashes cost taxpayers over $100 billion per year with the average person paying $800 from their annual salary.
13,000 people are killed each year in alcohol-related accidents with hundreds of thousands more getting injured.
The Risk of Intoxicated Driving
The human brain cannot handle driving while intoxicated because it has to process too many variables. Alcohol, or other drugs, can reduce a person’s attentiveness and their ability to make quick decisions. Drunk drivers will find it difficult to react to changes in the environment or execute many of the necessary maneuvers behind the wheel. Driving while intoxicated is a crime and people who are convicted for a DUI pay thousands of dollars in fines, have their license revoked, and risk being put in jail. Drunk Drivers are also commonly injured and killed in accidents. The risk of a driver under the influence being killed in an accident is eleven times that of unintoxicated drivers.
Driving under the influence isn’t just a risk to the person who is intoxicated. Many times a fatal collision involves the person/people that the drunk driver hit. Being responsible for the death of another human being is a hard consequence to live with. Not only will the person who was drunk likely receive jail time for manslaughter but they will have it on their record for the rest of their lives. Penalties could include:
- License suspended
- Restitution to the victims family
- Prison sentence up to 10 years
The risks of driving under the influence can be devastating. It is important to know and understand the consequences and in doing so prevent a horrible accident. If it is difficult to stop then it is possible a social activity has become an addiction. If this is the case then treatment should be found immediately.
Recovering From Alcohol Addiction
The signs of alcohol addiction are harder to spot in a person who is a “functional alcoholic”. Most of the time, they appear responsible and successful in their work or academic lives. Their high functioning traits often lead them to be in deep denial for many years before they ever consider or accept that they might have a problem with alcohol. Friends and family members may feel that they have things under control since they don’t fit the stereotype of a typical alcoholic.
