Address the Trauma – End the Addiction
Alcoholism and PTSD tend to go hand-in-hand. Post-traumatic stress disorder may lead to pain, fear, and discomfort, which some find can be temporarily numbed with alcohol. Drinking may be come a coping mechanism; the more you drink, the more you need to drink to get through the day. This may become a difficult cycle to break.

Combining Alcohol with PTSD May Make the Problem Worse
The combination of alcohol and post-traumatic stress disorder may lead to additional issues. PTSD often comes with violent outbursts, depression, and anxiety as well as other social concerns.
