A new website has just been launched to help people check their drinking pattern, identify potential problems, and take steps to make sure their drinking is under control. http://www.rethinkingdrinking.niaaa.nih.gov was developed by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) to provide the best evidence-based advice to people who may have a drinking problem. It is very user-friendly and includes links to other resources. I’d recommend it to anyone who wonders if they may be drinking too much. It could also help you ensure your drinking is under control prior to a quit attempt.
