Hallucinosis is a pathological condition characterized by experiencing hallucinations or sensing something which is not present or real. For instance, in alcoholic hallucinosis, patients who have chronically abused alcohol may experience auditory hallucinations after consuming much liquor. A sample case featured a middle-aged soldier who is observed to be talking to himself that reported that he has been hearing voices of his family members even when alone. He has been a heavy drinker for 25 years, consuming 400 ml to 600 ml of liquor almost daily.
