Alcoholism

Alcohol is a problem for you if it causes problems in any part of your life. This includes your health, your work and your life at home. You may have a problem with alcohol if you think about drinking all the time, if you keep trying to quit on you own but can’t, or if you often drink more than you plan to.

If you answer yes to one or more of the questions listed below, you may have a problem with alcohol. Have you ever felt:

  • The need to cut down on your drinking?
  • Annoyed by criticism of your drinking?
  • Guilty about your drinking?
  • As if you need an eye-opener in the morning?

If you or someone you know has a drinking problem, contact Region 8 Alcohol and Drug Services at 591-5553.
