They Have Irregular Sleeping Habits

If you are suspicious of your loved one’s problematic drinking behavior, or substance abuse, pay attention to their sleeping patterns. Research shows that sleeping issues are very common among individuals who abuse substances.  If your loved one is often late for work, or regularly appears sluggish or disheveled, this could be a sign of an addiction that has led to a sleep disorder.

They Have Regular Mood Swings

If your loved one abuses substances, chances are they have regular mood swings. When they come off of their high, they are more susceptible to feelings of depression, anxiety, and other negative feelings.

You Have Noticed a Change in Their Physical Appearance

As we know, addiction comes with serious long-term health risks. These health issues are also often transparent physically. These changes could include weight loss, dark circles under eyes, or poor dental hygiene.
