Patient discussion about moderator

Q. what does moderate drinking mean? I am addicted to drinks… oops! Not water but alcohol. My well-wishers advised and requested me to drink moderate. Is it so? If I have to hate my habit then I want to know what does moderate drinking mean.

A. To me, you know that you don't drink "moderately" if you are questioning it. And apparently those around you are noticing. The helpful thing is that you know it. Most people who drink will deny it. Maybe you should visit a local AA meeting and get a feel for what you are doing. There is plenty support there. It would be a good thing to nip it in the bud at this early point.

No two-word (not just echolalic) phrases by 24 months, any loss of any language or social skills at any age.
