Many people are concerned about the amount and frequency with which they are drinking – or are worried about similar behavior in someone they care about. Most of them are well aware of the harm that drinking can inflict upon our health and our lives, but they might not be clear on how much drinking is too much drinking – or how often is too often.

A quick test involves the following six questions:

  1. Do you drink alone after a disappointment or because you've had a stressful day?
  2. Does your drinking ever make you late for work?
  3. Does your drinking concern your family?
  4. Do you ever have a drink after promising yourself you won't?
  5. Do you ever forget what you did while you were drinking?
  6. Do you get headaches or have a hang-over after you have been drinking?

Anyone who answers "yes" to any of these questions might have a problem with alcohol, and should talk about their drinking habits with their health care provider. This doesn't mean that answering "yes" means that a person is definitely an alcoholic – just that a professional opinion is called for.

People whose behavior does rise to the level of a drinking problem will be advised by their health care provider to either reduce their drinking or stop altogether.

What is Alcoholism?

Alcoholism is a potentially life-threatening condition that is marked by a compulsion to consume alcohol, regardless of the consequences. Alcoholic individuals can become both physically and psychologically dependent upon alcohol, and exhibit an inability to control the amount and frequency of their drinking.

The Decision to Get Help

Overcoming an addiction to alcohol can be a decidedly difficult process that often requires the professional supervision of a health care provider or addiction specialist. Accepting that one is incapable of dealing with this disorder on one's own may not be easy, but the sooner a person admits that he needs help, the greater the likelihood is that his recovery experience will be a successful one.
