Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances in the United States. However, alcohol use is legal and often a part of social interaction. Often it is hard for someone with an alcohol addiction to be able to tell when it is time to seek help. The line between normal drinking and an addiction may seem blurry, but if your use of alcohol is negatively effecting other areas of your life then it may be time to talk with a specialist about your alcohol use. If you can answer yes to any of the questions below, it may be time to speak with an expert about your drinking problem:
- Do your feel a sense of guilt or shame after drinking?
- Have you lied about your whereabouts or activities to hide the fact that you were drinking?
- Have your loved ones approached you about your alcohol use and told you that they are worried about your behaviors?
- Do you use alcohol to improve your mood or to feel better?
- Have you blacked out or been unable to remember what you did after drinking?
- Do you find yourself drinking more than you anticipated or originally planned to?
It can be hard to self-identify when your drinking has moved to alcohol addiction. A good rule of thumb is if there are negative effects in your life or the lives of the people around you, your drinking should be addressed.
