"To be gravely affected, one does not necessarily have to drink a long time nor take the quantities some of us have. This is particularly true of women. Potential female alcoholics often turn into the real thing and are gone beyond recall in a few years. Certain drinkers, who would be greatly insulted if called alcoholics, are astonished at their inability to stop." p 33 _Alcoholics Anonymous_

To find out if you have a problem, you can do a couple of things:

one, you can attempt to stop drinking on your own.

two, you can attempt to drink just one drink. Remember, one drink is
a can of beer (12 ounces) or a 4-ounce (1/2 cup) glass of wine. It is
also the same as one jigger (1 ounce) of hard liquor, such as whiskey.

Take careful note of how you feel and especially if you are obsessing
about alcohol during these trials.

You can also try the short quiz here:

Another suggestion would be to attend a meeting of Alcoholics
Anonymous and listen to what the people share. For myself, at my
first meeting I identified with the feelings and experiences related
by the speakers and it seemed to me that I just might be one of them.
