Problem drinkers


A problem drinker is anyone whose drinking causes a problem. He or she may not drink all that often, but if the use of alcohol is affecting the individual’s life (or someone else's) in a negative way, then this person is a problem drinker. A lot of people who have a problem with alcohol are not necessarily alcoholics, and in order to quit drinking they do not necessarily need intensive medical treatment or peer group support. In fact, most of these people can stop drinking without any outside help. They simply make up their minds to stop or modify their drinking patterns.
