How Much is too Much? Three Signs of an Alcohol Problem
During the holiday season, many of us eat and drink more than we planned. Depending on your circle of friends and family, it may be acceptable to get a little “tipsy.” But, how can you tell if your drinking is becoming a problem in your life?
Some symptoms of alcohol problems include:
- Having times when you ended up drinking more or longer than you planned
- Trying to cut down or stop drinking without success
- Continuing to drink even though it was making you feel unhappy
In addition, getting into situations that are risky because of drinking can mean your drinking is a problem.
About 17 million adults in America have an alcohol use disorder. There are several successful ways to treat alcohol use disorders. We offer a free and anonymous alcohol use self-assessment. You can visit the site, answer a few questions and get information about whether you may have an alcohol problem and resources for where you can get help, if necessary.
If you think you or a loved one may have a alcohol problem that needs immediate attention, please contact the Bryan Independence Center today.
