Drinking too much alcohol on a regular basis can lead to a physical alcohol addiction, meaning the person has to drink alcohol for their body to function. The psychological addiction may even be gone at this point, and they not want to drink anymore, however the physical addiction is still there. Another example could be in marijuana.
