It's called dependence and addiction. If the use or intake of alcohol is suddenly discontinued it leads to withdrawal symptoms.
Once a person starts taking alcohols or drug, it becomes very difficult to get rid of this habit. It is mainly because according to this person, alcohol is the only way to attain a normal state. Alcohol does not affect any organ other than the nervous system of a human body. However, due to the effect on the nervous system other organs also get affected. Prolonged use of alcohol can make a person so addicted that his nervous system works normally only in the presence of alcohol or drugs. Even when someone starts withdrawing alcohol or drugs, the body gets affected badly and withdrawal symptoms are seen. Due to these, withdrawal symptoms, people often do not get rid of alcohol.
