Do I Have a Drinking Problem? 4 Key Questions to Ask Yourself

Have I ever felt I should cut down on my drinking?


1. Have I ever felt I should cut down on my drinking?

2. Have people annoyed me by criticizing my drinking?

3. Have I ever felt bad or guilty about my drinking?

4. Have I ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady my nerves or to get rid of a hangover?

If you answer “yes” to two or more questions, you should get help. Talk to your doctor, and check out groups like Moderation Management, a recovery program and national support network for people who have decided to reduce their drinking.
