When do I need help for alcohol?

Drinking is such a normal, frequent, and enjoyable part of life that it can be hard to realize when you need help. Additionally, everyone
can tolerate different amounts of alcohol, making it challenging to know where to draw the line.
If you take a step back and look at your habits and behaviors, you can usually see signs that your recreational drinking has turned into
a potential problem or dependency.
You may need help for alcohol when you:
  • Consistently drink more than you should
  • Spend a lot of time drinking
  • Make excuses to drink (need it to relax or deal with stress)
  • Stop meeting responsibilities at work and home
  • Keep drinking even if it affects your health
  • Participate in risky behaviors while drinking (drunk driving, for example)
  • Drink alone or avoid your family and friends while drinking
  • Have blackouts or memory loss
  • Need to drink more to get the same effect
Craving alcohol or having withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking are red flags that you need help.

Why is it important to get help for alcohol?

Recreational drinking gradually turns into substance abuse and addiction. Once you cross the line into dependence, you’re drinking
enough alcohol to put yourself at risk for many problems.
As alcohol takes over your life, it damages your personal relationships, and in many cases, you end up losing your job. Drinking also
significantly increases the chance of having an automobile accident or other traumatic injury.
If you drink excessively for an extended time, you also develop health problems like anemia, nerve damage, liver disease, heart
disease, and dementia.
Getting help for alcohol is vital to prevent these complications, protect your health, and ensure you have a future.
