Understanding Issues with Alcohol
It is not always easy to see when your drinking has crossed the line from moderate or social use to problem drinking.
However, if you consume alcohol to cope with difficulties or to avoid feeling bad, you’re in potentially dangerous territory.
Alcoholism and alcohol abuse can sneak up on you, so it’s important to be aware of the warning signs and take steps to cut back if you recognize them.
Understanding the problem is the first step to overcoming it. You may have a drinking problem if you…
– Feel guilty or ashamed about your drinking
– Lie to others or hide your drinking habits
– Have friends or family members who are worried about your drinking
– Need to drink in order to relax or feel better
– “Black out” or forget what you did while you were drinking
– Regularly drink more than you intended to
If you have a drinking problem, you may deny it by:
– Drastically underestimating how much you drink
– Downplaying the negative consequences of your drinking
– Complaining that family and friends are exaggerating the problem
– Blaming your drinking or drinking-related problems on others
If you are ready to admit you have a drinking problem, you have already taken the first step. It takes tremendous strength and courage to face alcohol abuse and alcoholism head on.
Whether you choose to go to rehab, rely on self-help programs, get therapy, or take a self-directed treatment approach, support is essential.
Recovering from alcohol addiction is much easier when you have people you can lean on for encouragement, comfort, and guidance. Without support, it’s easy to fall back into old patterns when things get tough.
At the Wellbeing Practice we believe your continued recovery depends on continuing emotional health treatment, learning healthier coping strategies, and making better decisions when dealing with life’s challenges. In order to stay alcohol-free for the long term, you’ll also have to face the underlying problems that led to your alcoholism or alcohol abuse in the first place.
