Are YOU An Alcoholic?

A.A. does not diagnose anyone, but there are some
signs you should take seriously: Do you drink more than you intend to? Do you feel remorseful after drinking episodes? Do you try to hide the amount you drink from others? Have you missed work or other important activities because of drinking? Do you find it difficult to guarantee your behaviour when you drink?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you MAY have a problem and you should investigate further. Use the official A.A. links below. Go to an A.A. meeting and listen.
