One of the most common traits shared amongst problem drinkers is intense discomfort in social situations. I think it's safe to say that all people feel some level of social anxiety. However, in my experience, I have discovered that people with addictive personalities, heavy drinkers especially, struggled to feel comfortable in any type of social situation. Interacting with other people can feel so uncomfortable that we need to alleviate our stress with the ancient social lubricant called alcohol. Without a few drinks in our systems spending time in any type of social environment can feel annoying, even painful.
