Every now and then an after-work beer or an Aperol when the weather is nice? If you feel like you’re drinking too much alcohol, you should do this self-test. With this test you can assess your own drinking behavior.

How often do you drink alcohol? If you drink alcohol, how many glasses per day?

Do you feel like you no longer have control over your alcohol consumption?

Andrea Hardeling, managing director of the State Office for Addiction Issues, recommends checking your own drinking behavior with a self-test. You can find it, for example, on the website www.selbsthilfelokal.de.

You can also ask yourself critically: How difficult is it for me to give up alcohol? Can I really just stop drinking like that?

On the website of the German Central Office for Addiction Issues you can find advice centers in your region, some of which also offer help online.
