Alcohol abuse

Use of alcoholic beverages to excess, either on individual occasions ("binge drinking") or as a regular practice. 

Abusing alcohol in a manner that repeatedly causes harm to financial, emotional, social, and physical or career performance. Abuse of alcohol uses drinking in a destructive manner for the physical and mind altering effects, instead of for the taste, becoming drunk.
When alcohol is abused, the abuser has impaired control over their consumption, and will begin to build up a tolerance against alcohol. This requires them to drink more and more to feel the effects of the alcohol. They will begin to suffer from the consequences of their drinking and may struggle to maintain their responsibilities in life.
On another level pathological use is defined by the World Health Organisation as the consumption of more than 21 units of alcohol per week for males, and 14 units of alcohol per week for females.
It’s interesting to note that any usage for teenagers /adolescents constitutes abuse as they are below the legal age limit.
