Is your Friday night tradition going to the bar to drink away your week of workplace worries? When you go out with friends, do you normally wake up on one of their couches because you were too intoxicated to drive home? These regular events might point to a binge-triggered alcohol problem. Addiction experts cite that even one night of drinking three, four, or more alcoholic beverages can indicate an alcohol addiction. Binge drinking that interferes with the rest of your weekly activities can also reflect a problem. If your drinking causes you to miss out on opportunities to spend quality time with your friends or family, or if it hampers your ability to attend to your job responsibilities, it may be time to speak with an addiction counselor.
