others in your life have told you that you have a problem, you probably do.
If you have continued to drink in spite of negative consequences, that
could be an indication of a serious problem.

Most people who experience problems with drinking, simply quit. They have
one particularly painful or embarrassing drinking incident, wake up the
next morning and tell themselves, "Never again!" and that's it. They stop
drinking; just like that, no problem.

If you have done the same thing -- told yourself you would never get that
drunk again, or even drink again -- but found yourself a few days later
doing exactly what you swore to /yourself/ you would never do, chances are
your drinking falls into the category of alcohol abuse, at the very least,
and alcohol dependence at worse.

definition is a "drinking problem." Whether or not you have become alcohol
dependent is another question -- and whether or not you come to believe
