How Do I Know if I Have a Problem?

One way to assess whether or not you have a drinking problem is to consider the guidelines for
moderate drinking. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA),
moderate drinking is defined as 2 drinks a day for men and 1 drink a day for women and older people.

A standard drink is equal to
• one 12-ounce bottle or can of beer or wine cooler
• or one 5-ounce glass of wine
• or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits
