addicted to alcohol - man drinking - summit bhcHave you ever wondered if you’re addicted to alcohol?

Many have questioned if they’ve crossed the line from social drinking into addiction, and quite frankly, if you suspect you might be suffering from addiction, you probably are.

Denial is powerful, though, so it’s very easy to talk yourself out of any suggestion that you might be addicted.

For example, you might tell yourself that you can’t be suffering from addiction for any of the following reasons: 

  • I only drink at night.
  • I only drink beer.
  • I’ve never had a D.U.I.
  • I can stop when I want to; I just don’t want to.
  • I only drink on the weekends.

As a general rule of thumb, if alcohol use is interfering in any part of your life, such as work or relationships, it is strongly recommended that you seek help. 

Alcoholism is a serious disease that if not treated will only progress and worsen over time. It can be a slow progression, taking many years to surface, or it can happen rapidly. However it progresses, it will eventually destroy communities, families, and the person who suffers from it.

If you’re wondering about your own or someone else’s drinking habits, consider completing this questionnaire that will help you determine whether you might be suffering from addiction.

You deserve to live a life free from the bondage of addiction, and with the right help and guidance, it is possible. Seek help before addiction steals your life.
