What are the Signs and Symptoms of Alcoholism?

How can you tell whether you or someone close to you may have a drinking problem?  The questions below can help:

  • Have you felt that you should cut down on your drinking?
  • Have people annoyed you by commenting on or criticising your drinking?
  • Have you ever felt guilty or uncomfortable about your drinking?
  • Have you ever had a drink early in the day to steady your nerves or cure a hangover.

If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions it is highly likely that a problem exists. You may be developing alcohol dependence if you:

  • Need to drink regularly
  • Drink alone
  • Hide drink in the home, workplace or car
  • Need a drink to stop trembling (the shakes)
  • Drink early or first thing in the morning
  • Often have a craving to drink alcohol
  • Your social life deliberately revolves around drinking and neglects other interests or social activities to allow time for drinking.

If  you feel that any of the above applies to you and you feel you would like to discuss private, residential treatment to help you overcome an alcohol problem please contact Linwood Manor.
