Recognize the Patterns of Alcoholism

EAP Navigator - April 2016

Alcoholism Few alcoholics will admit they have a problem. It’s a characteristic to believe you’re OK -- everything and everybody else are wrong.

Those willing to face facts usually find plenty of clues that their drinking is out of control.

You may suffer from alcoholism if:

-- You have experienced problems on the job, with the law or with your family because of your drinking.

-- You avoid parties or places where liquor isn’t served.

-- You look forward to a set time in the day when you can start -- drinking.

-- You worry alcohol won’t be available when you want it.

-- You periodically try to slow down or stop drinking.

-- You get up the day after drinking and not remember what happened the night before.

-- You always have a “good reason” why you need a drink -- perhaps a tough day at work, an argument or stress.

-- You begin to distrust and avoid some people.

-- Friends, family members and/or others have talked to you about your drinking.

-- You hide your use from other people.
