Am I Drinking Too Much? Let's Get Honest...


am i drinking too much

If you're asking yourself this question, chances are you have some concerns about the amount, or the way, that you are drinking.


Let's get real and run through some questions that will help you determine whether your drinking habits are something you should consider doing something about.


Physical Health: Understanding Alcohol's Toll


Excessive drinking can lead to a range of physical health issues. Reflect on these questions to assess the physical impact:

  1. Have you experienced frequent or severe hangovers recently?

  2. Do you often drink more than your body can handle?

  3. Have you noticed any persistent health issues, like stomach pain or liver discomfort?

  4. Is your immune system weaker, leading to frequent illnesses?

  5. Are you experiencing any disruptions in your sleep patterns due to drinking?


Mental and Emotional Well-being


Alcohol can significantly affect your mental and emotional health. Consider these questions:

  1. Do you rely on alcohol to deal with stress, anxiety, or depression?

  2. Have you noticed increased irritability or mood swings when you're not drinking?

  3. Is alcohol affecting your memory or concentration?

  4. Do you feel guilty or ashamed about your drinking?

  5. Does alcohol seem to exacerbate any existing mental health issues?

Impact on Work and Productivity


Your professional life can be a key indicator of problematic drinking:

  1. Has your job performance suffered due to alcohol use?

  2. Do you often drink during work hours or before work-related events?

  3. Have you missed work or deadlines due to the effects of alcohol?

  4. Are you less productive or motivated because of your drinking habits?

  5. Has alcohol led to any disciplinary actions at work?


Relationships and Social Life


Alcoholism often disrupts personal and social relationships:

  1. Do friends or family members express concern about your drinking?

  2. Has drinking caused conflicts in your personal relationships?

  3. Are your social activities primarily centered around alcohol?

  4. Do you find yourself avoiding social events where alcohol isn't available?

  5. Have you lost interest in hobbies or activities that used to bring you joy?

Behavioural Signs of Alcoholism


Certain behavioural patterns can signify alcoholism:

  1. Do you often drink alone or in secret?

  2. Have you tried to cut back on drinking but found you couldn't?

  3. Are you spending more time and resources on obtaining and consuming alcohol?

  4. Do you continue to drink despite knowing it's causing problems in your life?

  5. Do you experience cravings or a strong desire to drink?



If you find yourself answering 'yes' to three or more of these questions, it might be an indication that your drinking has become problematic.
