Alcohol Consumption Checklist Quiz
If you experience any of the items listed below, on a regular basis, you may have a dependency on alcohol.
Do you feel guilt, shame or embarrassment about your drinking or its consequences?
Do you find it hard to socialise or relax without a drink?
Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or get over a hangover?
Have you continued to drink even though it was making you feel depressed, anxious or affecting another health problem?
Do you use alcohol to numb emotions or to stop feeling unpleasant feelings?
Have there been situations where you ended up drinking much more than you intended?
Have you gotten into situations with the potential of harming yourself or others (i.e. drinking and driving) or you have been in trouble with the law due to alcohol-related problems?
How do I help you Reduce Alcohol Consumption?
Successful long term alcohol reduction is a process of change, involving a number of steps.
You may drink a few too many glasses of wine or you may feel that you have developed an alcohol dependency.
There are several theories about what creates alcohol dependency. Is it genetic, inherited from one generation to the next? Is it the result of early childhood or cultural attitudes to alcohol? Is it related to other mental health issues?
My approach is to view you as capable and fully able to make choices about whether to drink or not. As such we will work together, helping you to overcome cravings and reduce your drinking patterns.
There can be shame associated with alcohol as well. Often drinking can be a secret, kept from others. I can help you address all aspects of your alcohol consumption habit. I listen and support. I never judge anything you have done or anything you might say.
The main work we will do together is examining your relationship with alcohol. What is the role that alcohol has begun to play in your life? How do you use it? Do you use it to help you socialise or ‘do well’ at work or in social situations? Do you find that you reach for a drink when stressed? Do you feel more confident and less self-conscious after a few drinks?
We will look at the underlying reasons for your drinking habit. You may find that the underlying issues also really need to be addressed.
For example, has alcohol begun to function as your way of avoiding important life issues? Do you ever use alcohol to numb yourself or suppress emotions and feelings that are uncomfortable?
We will find new ways for you to do well with challenges and thereby reduce the role of alcohol in your life. We will also decide whether reducing consumption is the goal or complete abstinence is preferable. This is something we decide together and ultimately is your decision.
If you consume alcohol on a regular basis, decreasing or stopping drinking may require a plan.
Withdrawal symptoms can be physical and psychological. If you drink heavily, you may experience hand tremors (‘the shakes’), sweating, anxiety, restlessness or insomnia (difficulty sleeping), for example. It can take a number of weeks to fully recover if you have a high level of alcohol consumption.
Even if you are a moderate drinker, you may also experience some withdrawal symptoms. Often these will be more emotional and psychological than physical. This is since you have developed some emotional dependency on alcohol. It is important to deal with these too.
You were not born needing alcohol to function. It is time to find alternative ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. It is also important to consider other ways to relax and nurture your well-being.
Alcohol can be used to avoid addressing and working towards those things you truly want out of life. Without alcohol, I will support you, if needed, to re-discover confidence and remind yourself of all those goals you once wanted and those gifts you have to give to the world around you.
Moving from dependency or addiction will signal for you a movement in a positive and optimistic direction.
