There are several signs that someone has a drinking problem. One of the biggest signs is if drinking is having an impact on other parts of your life. For example, if you are not performing as well at work or you are missing days of work, or if there are relationships in your life that are suffering because of your drinking.
Another sign is if you are drinking alone, or if you are drinking large amounts on a regular basis. If friends or loved ones are expressing concern about your drinking, you may have a drinking problem. If you are unsure, ask yourself if you would be better off without alcohol in your life.
