Alcohol anosognosia - denial of the disease

What are the reasons for

The causes of the pathology are both physical and physiological.

As the influence of ethyl alcohol adversely affects the mental processes of the patient, the alcoholic ceases to be aware of his problem. This happens due to the break of neural connections. As a result, a person is simply not able to think and analyze.

Anosognosic syndrome can be laid since childhood. For example, someone in the family drank heavily, but they did not try to cure him, they simply did not pay attention.
Accordingly, a person, even in adulthood, does not see anything terrible in alcohol dependence, and, moreover, never assigns himself the terrible status of an alcoholic.
