Recognizing a Drinking Problem
You may have a problem with alcohol if:
You have experienced problems on the job, with the law or with your family because of your drinking.
You avoid parties or places where liquor isn't served.
You look forward to a set time in the day when you can start drinking.
You worry alcohol won't be available when you want it.
You periodically try to slow down or stop drinking.
You always have a "good reason" why you need a drink -- perhaps a tough day at work, an argument or stress.
Friends, family members and/or others have talked to you about your drinking.
