How can I determine if I'm an alcoholic?
When A.A. members state they are alcoholics, they have come to this
conclusion for themselves. If you have concerns about your drinking,
you might want to refer to our booklet "Is A.A. for You?",
which asks questions that are helpful in making your own assessment.
Attendance at A.A. meetings will also help you to understand your
drinking better. There, A.A. members will share their experiences with
you and encourage you to take an honest look at what part alcohol plays
in your life. Alcoholics usually identify quite readily with the
experiences of other alcoholics, whereas non-alcoholics will not.
