April is Alcoholism Awareness Month

AlcoholismAlcoholism affects many people in the United States as well as globally. It can be detrimental to relationships, friendships, and familial bonds. Some people use alcohol to cope with stress and other problems in their life. While it is completely possible to engage in alcohol related activities responsibly and with the proper amount of restraint, it’s still important to occasionally evaluate your drinking habits and decide whether or not you might be on the road to alcoholism. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence is helping people to evaluate their alcohol intake this month by releasing a questionnaire with information regarding your drinking habits. You can take the full test on their website.

Some of the questions included in the test focus on alcohol tolerance, frequency of alcohol intake, reasons for drinking, and how those who know you best view your drinking habits. The quiz allows you to see exactly what habits may be causing you problems and recommends that if you are exhibiting the symptoms of a drinking problem, that you talk with a professional and seek counseling to help you work through it.

As we’ve stressed in the past, the health of our employees at Reliable Contracting is very important to us. We take addiction seriously and know that it can rear its ugly head in people with even the best of intentions. We urge anyone who thinks that they may have an addiction to alcohol to find the help that they need quickly and make an attempt to get back to good health. Make sure that if you’re drinking, you’re doing so responsibly and in moderation.
