QUIZ: Is your drinking under control?

Filed under: Fitness — Tags: — admin @ 11:07 pm

As psychotherapist Diane Young sees it, one of the tricky things about identifying an alcohol problem is that it can present in different ways.

“It’ll either manifest either as regular or habitual drinking, characterised by drinking alcohol daily, or on a near daily basis. Or it will be binge drinking, characterised by occasions of heavy alcohol use, followed by alcohol free days,” she says.

So, basically, just because you’re not drinking every day doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem.

When our drinking is out of control, it can affect our work, our relationships, our finances, and our health. That might mean you’re letting the people you love down because you put alcohol first, or doing things while you’re drunk that you later regret. 

A good first step if you’re worried your drinking might be getting out of hand is to take an online self-assessment – like South Pacific Private’s – and answer truthfully about your behaviour. You can get started right now – it only takes a couple of minutes and could put you on the road to recovery.
