Alcoholism is a disease. A disease is not something to be embarrassed of or feel guilty about. A person who is suffering from cancer should be no less embarrassed or in denial of the disease than a person suffering from alcoholism. If you find yourself drinking excessively and on a daily basis, you are suffering from some form of the disease of alcoholism. The quickest and safest way to get better is through a professional alcohol treatment center.
How Do I Know If I’m an Alcoholic?
There are many ways to tell if you are or are prone to the disease. After you read this article, if you think you may have a problem, don't delay in getting treatment for alcoholism. If you would answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following questions, you are suffering from alcoholism:
• Do you drink everyday?
• Do you drink to ease pain and stress?
• Do you drink by yourself, in secret, because you don’t want other people’s input about your drinking?
• Do you have daily/weekly moments of blackouts while drinking, leaving you unable to remember what happened when you were drinking?
• Do you drink in the morning, soon after waking up?
• Do you crave a drink after not having one for a short period of time?
• Have you spent money that you really can’t afford on alcohol, thinking it was worth it at the time?
• Do you have feelings of regrets about drinking?
