Alcoholism Statistics

The statistics on alcoholism are mind blowing. Alcoholism is a serious problem in today’s society. It is extremely important that the public, including the large groups of users and abusers of alcohol, gain as much knowledge as possible about the symptoms and effects of alcoholism if we ever want to see the reduction of statistics involving fatalities, injuries, diseases caused from the use and abuse of alcohol. Education and realization of the effects alcoholism can have on the different aspects of a person’s life are the best ways that we can help lower the number of individuals who are addicted to alcohol.

Alcoholism Suicides Statistics

  •  Studies of suicide victims in the general population show that about 20% are alcoholic.
  • 1/3 of alcoholic deaths are from suicides or accidents such as drownings, head injuries from falling, or car crashes.

Alcohol-Related Deaths

Perhaps the most serious complication associated with alcoholism is shortened lifespan. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, alcohol is responsible for more deaths worldwide than AIDS, tuberculosis and violence. And in the United States alone, alcohol is responsible for approximately 75,000 deaths each year. The following describes some of the most common types of alcohol-related deaths.
  • Traffic accidents. Drunk driving contributes to approximately 10,000 deaths in the United States each year, accounting for around 30 percent of all traffic deaths.
  • AIDS. HIV is a growing concerns for alcoholics. What’s more, even casual drinking and isolated incidents can result in a diagnosis of HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. This is due to the risky behaviors associated with alcohol intoxication, which often include unsafe sex and intravenous drug use. Further, those already diagnosed with HIV or AIDS are more likely to transmit the disease while under the influence of alcohol.
  • Cancer. As previously mentioned, long-term drinkers often face a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives. And although cancer of the liver is the most prevalent among alcoholics, cancers of the throat, mouth, breast, stomach and colon are common as well.
  • Suicide. Due to the psychological causes and effects associated with alcoholism, suicide is a huge concern among alcoholics and their loved ones.
  • Accidents. Due to severely impaired coordination, equilibrium, motor skills, depth perception and reflexes, alcohol intoxication can have devastating effects on personal safety. These impairments can bring danger to the most banal activities, such as walking across the street, swimming or navigating a flight of stairs.
  • Violence. Because of its effects on impulse control, alcohol often plays a role in violent altercations like fights, shootings, armed robberies and crimes of passion.
  • Alcohol poisoning. This complication is most common among teenagers, young adults and binge drinkers. The result of abnormally high blood alcohol levels, alcohol poisoning typically occurs due to fast-paced or extended drinking as well as in individuals who have resumed drinking after a period of abstinence.

Complications to Psychological and Emotional Health

In addition to the physical risks of alcoholism, complications to psychological and emotional health are common as well.
  • Depression. A large percentage of alcoholics suffer from depression, either as a contributing cause of alcoholism or as a direct effect of alcohol abuse. Continued drinking worsens the symptoms of depression, just as symptoms of depression tend to increase an individual’s desire to consume alcohol. As a result, alcoholics are at a significantly increased risk of developing severe depression and accompanying complications.
  • Risky behaviors. Since alcohol lowers inhibitions, drinkers are likely to engage in various types of risky and compulsive behaviors. For example, drinking may result in driving under the influence, prostitution, promiscuous and/or unprotected sex, gambling, missing work or school, the use of illicit drugs, aggression and violent behaviors.
  • Anxiety. Due to alcohol’s effects on the central nervous system, alcoholics often suffer from nervousness, anxiety and related complications.
  • Personality changes. While under the influence of alcohol, many heavy drinkers undergo dramatic changes in personality. Often referred to as “Jekyll and Hyde syndrome,” this complication is characterized by severe mood swings and changes in thoughts and behaviors.
In 2011, 9,878 people died in drunk driving crashes – one every 53 minutes
Alcohol-impaired driving crashes account for nearly 11,000 crash fatalities, or about one third of all crash fatalities in the United States.
