Alcoholism is the term frequently given to the most serious form of problem drinking, that of alcohol addiction/dependence.

Alcoholism can lead to serious physical and mental issues if left untreated, as alcoholics often develop a tolerance for the effects of alcohol, requiring greater and greater amounts to achieve intoxication, increasing the risk of permanent damage.

They can also often suffer from physical withdrawal symptoms if unable to access alcohol.
