The NHS UK advises answering the following questions to yourself to determine of you are drinking too much:
-Have you ever thought you should cut down on your drinking?
-Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
-Have you ever felt guilty about your drinking?
-Have you ever drunk alcohol first thing in the morning to get over a hangover and steady your nerves?
If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may have an alcohol problem and should consult your doctor for help.
