How Much Alcohol Is Too Much?

Do you drink too much at one time, drink too often, or both? Not sure? Many people don’t realize that their drinking habits could be a problem. Find out how risky your drinking is with NIH’s “Rethinking Drinking” interactive website.

Perhaps you now spend time drinking instead of doing something else you used to enjoy. Or, maybe being sick from drinking has caused you trouble at work. By recognizing symptoms early, you can take steps to reduce your risk of developing alcohol use disorder.

Visit “How Much Is Too Much?” to take a quiz to see if your habits are a cause for concern. If you want to make a change, another module can help you set goals and chart strategies for your success.
