Drinking

 http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/alcoholism/basics/symptoms/con-20020866

Do you drink alcohol?  Do you drink alcohol at places other than at home?  Do you drink alcohol and drive afterwards?  Do you drink alone?  Do you feel the need to drink?  Do you hide alcohol at home or on the job?

Have you given up hobbies or friends because of your alcohol usage?  Do you have periods of time you can't remember because of your drinking?  Do you feel guilty about your drinking?  Do you drink a whole six pack in a day?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a drinking problem.  Police officers seldom turn to illegal drugs, but they do sometimes have a problem with alcohol.  It's not unusual to have a drink to relax or with dinner or while puttering around in the yard.  When you start having problems, it's time for counseling before you lose your job or hurt yourself or someone else; that's what the SGT Says.
