Should you Attend Alcohol Treatment Programs?
You may be wondering, “how much alcohol is too much?”. More than 3 drinks a day on a regular basis causes harmful effects on the body and mind. Most alcoholics consume more than this on a daily basis. If you are worried that you or a loved one is drinking too much, look for the signs of alcoholism in daily life. If the signs are evident, alcohol treatment programs can help.
Am I an Alcoholic?
You could have a drinking problem if you answer “yes” to one or more of the following questions:
Have your close friends or relatives told you that you have a drinking problem?
Do you get ornery, anxious, or depressed if you haven’t had a drink?
Do you often crave alcohol while performing daily routines and tasks?
Do you drink to deal with stress levels or negative emotions?
Have you tried to quit drinking, but failed?
Have you ever blacked out or had memory lapses because of alcohol consumption?
Do you drink alcohol before noon or early in the morning?
Do you blame alcohol for your financial issues?
Have you noticed changes in your relationships with family, friends, or co-workers due to alcohol consumption?
Have you ever lied about drinking?
Do you avoid friends or family while drinking?
Has your tolerance for alcohol grown?
Do you drink more than your friends?
Have you run into legal issues (like DUI) because of alcohol?
Do you stay intoxicated for several days at a time?
Do you regret things that you have said or done while intoxicated?
Do you experience withdrawal symptoms if you haven’t drunk alcohol for a while?
If you have answered “yes” to only a few of these questions, you might not have a drinking disorder. Dependency on alcohol happens over time, so you may just be in the early stages. The best thing that you can do is change your behavior now. If this proves difficult, seek help through alcohol treatment programs.
Alcoholics will deny that they have a problem until they have reached a point where they see no more hope in their lives. If you are aware that alcohol negatively affects areas in your life that you care about such as your family, career, school, friends, and health; you have a drinking problem.
