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.
