Ever wonder if you have a problem when it comes to your use of alcohol? Has a friend or even your spouse told you that it has become a problem? This link has two sets of questions that look into a person's use of alcohol to determine if it's a problem. Take the time to answer the questions presented. If the answers you give indicate that you might have a problem, then consider doing something about it. You can call the church and talk to one of our ministers, or you can call the number in the phone book for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is an organization that has been around a long time with a really good track record for helping people with this problem. Please remember that alcoholism is a disease, like diabetes or coronary heart disease. If treated properly, you can expect to live a much healthier life. If ignored, then the problems will deepen and the impact on your family will only get worse. So, take the test, and if you need to, call me. --Joel
