(HealthDay News) -- While you may see yourself as a social drinker, friends and relatives have hinted that your alcohol consumption is excessive.

Find out if you could have a drinking problem by asking yourself these questions, courtesy of the University of Washington:

  • Do I drink alone when I feel angry or sad?
  • Does drinking ever make me late for work?
  • Does drinking worry my family?
  • Do I ever drink after telling myself I won't?
  • Do I ever forget what I did while I was drinking?
  • Do I get headaches or have a hangover after I've been drinking?

If you've answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider getting help for your drinking behavior.
