ADMIT THE PROBLEM
- Ask the right question. Stop asking yourself whether or not you're an alcoholic. If you're asking yourself this, you probably are one.
- Stop the comparisons. They do you no good. That's not your life.
- Think of your future self. Picture yourself five years from now with the same drinking habits.
Furthermore, what happens to your body when you stop drinking? 1 Hour After You Quit This is when your body kicks into full-blown detox mode to clear the alcohol from your bloodstream and prevent alcohol poisoning, says Champion. An hour after your last drink, your liver starts working overtime. Your pancreas also starts producing extra insulin, which causes intense carb cravings.
Just so, is it OK to have an alcoholic drink every night?

Drinking alcohol in moderation generally is not a cause for concern.
