Getting help for alcohol-related problems
When to get help
Consider your answers to the following questions:
- Have your loved ones, friends or colleagues ever suggested you should, or asked you to, cut down your alcohol intake?
- Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
- Has your drinking ever got you into trouble?
- Do you ever wake up not knowing what happened the night before?
Working out if you need help to reduce your drinking can be confusing. An easier way to find the answer might be to give an expert a call and get their advice.
