The experience of ‘craving’ is often wrapped up in conventional phrasing. The patient may describe it in unambiguous terms – they are ‘gasping for a drink’ or report that ‘a drink will hit the spot’. The subjective interpretation of the withdrawal may, however, be much influenced by environment, and the person who is withdrawing on a hospital ward may not experience any craving. Cues for craving may include the feeling of intoxication as well as incipient or developed withdrawal, mood (anger, depression or elation) or situational cues (being in a pub or with a drinking friend).

At least four isozymes (different enzymes that catalyse the same reaction) of ALDH have been detected in humans. ALDH2, the isozyme largely responsible for the oxidation of acetaldehyde, exists in two forms, one of which is virtually inactive. Low-activity ALDH2, which is common in Oriental populations, leads to a flushing reaction when alcohol is taken – the so-called Oriental Flush Reaction. This reaction is unpleasant; therefore, individuals with low-activity ALDH2 are less inclined to drink and are thus less vulnerable to developing alcohol problems and dependence (Ball, Pembrey & Stevens, 2007).
