Someone who is a functional alcoholic may not always show the classic signs that they’re struggling with alcohol use disorder. For example, they might not show up blatantly drunk to family events. Or, they may not be physically or verbally abusive toward loved ones or friends when they drink. They may not even appear to drink as much as they do, making it difficult to even identify whether their drinking is an issue or not.

Alcohol cravings are also a normal part of recovery, especially if you were heavily addicted and have been drinking for a long time. If you’re struggling to deal with alcohol cravings, you might need professional help.
