5) Legal Trouble
Getting charged for driving under the influence is hands down a sign of an alcohol problem. A DUI is not the only alcohol-related legal problem that can result from alcoholism. Excessive drinking can lead to getting arrested for fighting, violent outbursts, theft, and attempting dangerous activities as a result of impaired judgment.
Alcoholism can lead to court fines, jail time, job loss, and imprisonment. If convicted of a felony as a result of alcohol impairment, sentencing might lead to an opportunity to check into a treatment center for alcoholism.
