How to tell when drinking is becoming a problem

Alcoholism is a rough word to deal with. Yet nobody is too young (or too old) to have trouble with booze.

That’s because alcoholism is an illness. It can hit anyone.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been drinking or what you’ve been drinking. It’s what drinking does to you that counts. To help you decide whether you might have a problem with your own drinking, we’ve prepared these 12 questions. The answers are nobody’s business but your own.

If you can answer yes to any one of these questions, maybe it’s time you took a serious look at what your drinking might be doing to you.
