Here are some questions? Don’t feel like you have to post your answers.
By posting it sounds like you think there might be a problem.
Do you feel like your drinking is a problem?
It sounds like you have decided to quit what has made you decide to (if in deed you did)?
Have friends or family expressed concern?
Are you spending more time drinking and less on other non-drinking related activates?
Have you had any problems as a result of your drinking (DUIs, family conflict, job loss, legal problems i.e. underage drinking )?
Has your drinking interfered with your ability to perform school, work, or social functions?
Answering yes to these questions can indicate that there is a problem or that your drinking is becoming a problem.
Alcoholism has a genetic and social component. Does anyone in your immediate or extended problems have difficulties controlling their use of alcohol or other drugs?
Alcohol is very damaging to the body if taken in extreme amounts. Liver problems are only part of the story. Most biological problems stemming for alcohol don’t show up until the late stages of alcoholism and are the result of frequent use in large quantities.
If you have started drinking a month ago it is unlikely that you would suffer any physical effects.
I am assuming that you are a woman based on your nic. Women can progress from social drinking to abuse, and dependence level drinking quickly but a month sees fast. Of course this is also related to how frequently and how much you have used in the past month.
A number of people have asked if you are trying to deal with something by drinking. If so this is another sign of problematic use.
I’ve done a lot of work with people who have addiction issues so feel free to PM if you have a question.
