When we want to make progress in our lives, we don’t always reach our goals in the time frame we set for ourselves even when sober. But with problem drinking, many times we can start losing ground in other areas such as keeping up our physical appearance, spending too much money or not working enough to make the bills, and can even get to the point where we aren’t addressing minor day-to-day issues that start piling up, turning into bigger, more unmanageable issues.

When you have a drinking problem, asking yourself these questions can be very important in coming to the realization of just how much alcohol is taking out of you. You will surely have a hard time getting your life back on track if you can’t see how much alcohol has affected you.
