Dipsophobia: The Fear of Drinking Alcohol

Dipsophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of drinking alcohol.  Those who suffer from this phobia have a fear addiction and the effects it will have on their life.  This is one phobia that has a potential to improve the quality of life rather than making it worse.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
