Drinking is a widely accepted social behavior. For many it poses no problem, but for others, drinking may become a problem. If your drinking has caused difficulties, either for you or someone else, it has already become a problem that needs to be addressed.

There are many self-help courses available to those who simply want to gain control over their drinking.
