Patient Comments: Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of alcohol abuse or alcoholism in a friend or relative?

Comment from: rommell, 55-64 Female (Caregiver) Published: August 28

She is gaining weight, and it seems more like bloating because she doesn't eat that much to gain the weight. Her eyes are turning yellow. She drinks from the time she gets up till she goes to bed.
