5 Red flags

“If someone close to you expresses concerns about your drinking, examine the consequences,” says Dr. Janesz. He suggests looking for these red flags:

  1. Loss of control. Intoxication from always drinking more, or drinking faster, than you intend.
  2. Accidents. The result of alcohol increasing impulsivity as well as fatigue.
  3. Health troubles. High blood pressure, digestive tract inflammation, weight issues, diabetes, liver disease and more.
  4. Work worries. Reduced ability to problem-solve, diminished executive functioning in the brain, and decreased strength, stamina and focus.
  5. People problems. Violent outbursts, infidelity, jealousy, economic insecurity and decreased sexual interest/satisfaction, impacting those you care about.
