When you think about alcohol, what do you think of? Do you think about beer? Wine? Hard liquor? These are common alcohol street names. Alcohol is marketed by many different companies and has many different forms. Beer, wine, vodka, rum, and whiskey are just a few of the kinds of alcohol products that are derived from the combination of hops, barley, wheat or grapes. These things are fermented and the alcohol content is extracted from them. It is infused into some of the alcoholic products that you can buy in the liquor or beer store today.
Liquor and alcohol are the words that most people will use to describe what you would have with dinner or at a party. There are some harsher alcohol street names that are used to describe alcohol or alcoholic beverages. You may hear words like “booze” or “juice” to describe alcohol. Beer is often described with the term “brew”. Harder liquor can be called “sauce”. Wine is sometimes referred to as “vino” as an alcohol street name.
All of these terms are used to describe different types of alcohol in a slang manner. If you were to hear someone say one of these words, you would think that they were going to go get some alcoholic beverages. If these words are used by underage people, you should find out if there is some illegal alcohol activity going on.
When alcohol is consumed in excess, it can cause havoc on your body. The “brew” that you seem to need every night may become a problem. If you are over the age of 21, alcohol is not illegal to drink. You may very well be able to handle your alcohol without any trouble at all. However, if you seem to be drinking more often, you may have the beginnings of a drinking problem.
If you are worried that you are drinking in excess, you should try to stop. If you feel that you cannot stop, and you keep going back to the alcohol, you may need to take more aggressive measures and ask for help.
There are several different ways to go about getting help in stopping the alcohol addiction. There are people that you can speak with to help you realize the dangers. They can help you get coping mechanisms in place that you can use as an alternative to alcohol drinking. You may be able to join a group that meets weekly to talk to others that have the same troubles that you do. You can try to find a class at a hospital that would discuss the dangers of alcohol. All of these methods can help you by talking to other people.
If this does not seem like enough, you may need to go through a treatment program to get help. If you commit yourself to taking the treatment program route, you would still be able to talk in a group setting, in a singular setting with a doctor, and you would get additional help on a more personalized level. You would have a complete physical and would be involved in an exercise program to help you feel better as you stop drinking. That “vino” or “sauce” would soon be a thing of the past, and you would be on your way to recovery.
