November 20, 2009, Newsletter Issue #231: How can I tell if I have a drinking problem?

Tip of the Week

The National Institute of Health recommends no more than two drinks per day for men, one drink per day for women. If you habitually drink more than this, it's time to assess your drinking habits. Do you drink to get drunk? Do you drink to cope with negative feelings and situations? Do you drink in the morning? Are you frequently hung-over? Have you ever been arrested for DUI or other offenses while drinking? All these are signs that you may have a serious drinking problem. Go to the Alcoholics Anonymous home page, and take the "AA Twenty Questions" assessment. Be honest! No one will see this but you. This assessment will answer many of your questions about alcoholism, and whether or not you have a drinking problem.
