Alcoholic Drinking Self Assessment

Drinking isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Measured drinking at social gatherings can help self-conscious people relax and enjoy themselves more. A lot of people enjoy drinking for the simple fact of the flavor a drink offers. Other like the sensation it brings, making them more daring or brave. And some people even drink because of the health benefits it offers. A number of studies have proven that drinking certain amounts of alcohol a day can be beneficial. For example, certain studies suggest that a single glass of red wine a day can help enormously.

Alcoholic Drinking Self Assesment

Considering this, it is also important to keep in mind that alcohol consumption tends to be something that can get out of control easily. People who start drinking just for the fun of it, or to enjoy a specific drink they want might relax enough to forget that they were only intending on drinking one cup. And the more they drink, the more likely they will keep at it. When alcohol consumption is carried out on a constant basis, in the long term, it will cause a person’s tolerance to grow, making them feel like they have to drink that much more to get the sensations a single cup could provide at first. And like a vicious circle, people will keep going back to it.

It can be really hard to accept that you have an addiction and if you have heard family members or friends making comments that seem to be saying that, even if they are not saying it directly, you might feel offended or even estranged by their words. Someone might have been straightforward and said you have a problem. If you truly believe you don’t, that you can quit drinking anytime you want or that they simply don’t understand the reality of things, you might want to take an alcoholic drinking self-assessment to make sure about where you stand.

If you don’t have a problem with alcohol, you shouldn’t have a problem answering a few questions.

  • How often do you drink alcoholic beverages?
  • How often do you drink more than 5 drinks?
  • How many drinks do you usually have in a day when you have been drinking?
  • How many times a month has your drinking affected you fulfilling your responsibilities?
  • Have you ever felt like you can’t stop drinking? If your answer is yes, how often does this happen?
  • How often do you drink in the morning?
  • How often do you feel guilty about drinking?
  • How often do you have blackouts?

If you have answered to these questions with high numbers, you might want to consider taking some time to yourself, sitting down and assessing your situation. Alcohol or drug dependence can have a strange effect on you. You might feel defensive and ready to strike back whenever someone says something about your situation. You should really give it a thought and think about why they are telling you those things. These are people who are concerned about you, your health and general wellbeing, so it’s not fair to react negatively when all they are trying to do is help.

So if you think about this and realize you might need help, you should look at Chiron Recovery, a place that can offer you the professional team and services you need in order to get back on your feet and start working towards recovering those friendships and relationships you have pushed away. Don’t be afraid to ask for help; all questions are valid and will be answered so get in touch and find out how they can help.
