An alchololic will drink at any time, day or night – even first thing in the morning. Ongoing over months and years.

The only one who can really help them to stop is themselves. Others can advise, but that is all.

I`m not sure about your `generic` question – but yes, the sign of someone being an alcoholic are pretty common.

You can not detox yourself, as alcohol is an addiction. There is some kind of pill the Dr.’s has used to help it.
It is genetic gene.
