If You Need a Drink Don't Take It!

other hand, a man may be a problem drinker though he limits himself to an ounce every other day.
What then is a problem drinker? What counts is motivation.
Let's look at an average sample of r oo alcoholics. About half of them are persons whose drinking is only a symptom of underlying mental disorder; alcohol cannot be blamed for their neurosis, for the fact that they are morons, for their epilepsy, dementia praecox or manic-depressive psychosis. But the other half are those who, starting as apparently well-integrated social drinkers, pamper their frustrations with alcohol until they can't face life except through a whisky haze.
If you rule out the mental misfits who really constitute other than an alcohol problem, it still does not suffice for an average drinker to insist it is impossible for him to become a problem drinker. Whether the incipient alcoholic's traits develop depends on the pressures to which he is subjected and on the social acceptance of heavy drinking by his circle.
Frustrations offer a fertile field for the alcoholic personality. One man may seek escape from the fact that he lacks energy to achieve his ambitions. Another with the same underlying characteristic will break out in drink only because he can't get a job. The reason for drinking may lie in childhood psychological experiences the drinker has forgotten.
There are tests which will help a man analyze his drinking habits. Can you enjoy a party only if there is liquor to release you? Do you long for the time of day when you can drink without hurting your job? Do you turn to alcohol each day to overcome anxiety, disgust, fatigue or frustration? Do you drink to offset difficulties with your wife, your boss, your children or employes? If the answer in any case is yes, says Dr. Abraham Myerson of Boston, one of the nation's leading psychiatrists, you are an alcohol dependent and in peril.
To put it in a nutshell, simply ask yourself: "Do I need this drink?" If the answer is yes, don't take it. The problem drinker is the person
