Alcoholism is a
rough word to deal with.
Yet nobody is too
young (or too old) to have trouble with booze.
alcoholism is an illness. It can hit anyone. Young, old. Rich, poor.
And it doesn't
matter how long you've been drinking or what you've been drinking. It's
what drinking does to you that counts.
To help you decide
whether you might have a problem with your own drinking, we've prepared
these 12 questions. The answers are nobody's business but your own.
If you can answer
yes to any one of these questions, maybe it's time you took a
serious look at what your drinking might be doing to you.
And, if you do
need help or if you'd just like to talk to someone about your drinking,
call us. We're in the phone book under Alcoholics Anonymous.
