It is important to be able to spot the warning signs that you may need assistance because of your drinking. Here are some of the indicators:
If you cannot control when you start or stop drinking
If you cannot control how much you drink
If you suffer nausea, vomiting and headaches after drinking
If you are verbally or physically abusive
If you are unable to meet family, personal and work commitments after drinking
If you suffer legal or financial problems as a result of your drinking
If your doctor, family members, friends or workmates have told you that they are worried about your drinking.
Even if only a few of these indicators apply to you, you may have a problem with alcohol.
It is our policy to offer support to any employee who has a problem associated with the consumption of alcohol.
Any employee who believes or suspects that they may have a problem is encouraged to discuss this, confidentially, with their line manager or a member of the Human Resources Department. You will be offered appropriate support, which may include a referral to our Employee Assistance Program for advice and counselling.
