Traits Common to Safe Drinkers

  1. 1. Traits Common to Safe Drinkers By Margie Roop, LPCC-S; CEAP; SAP, LifeServices EAP Whatever the reasons, safe drinkers have certain traits in common, just as “problem drinkers” do. Young or old, rich or poor, male or female, a safe drinker, however, is one who: 1. Understands the risks of alcohol use. 2. Thinks of alcohol as a social activity with friends or as an accompaniment to a meal. 3. Avoids making a habit of any kind of drinking, whether it’s at the end of the day or at a sports event or at a party. 4. Chooses as friends other people who drink safely. 5. Sometimes chooses not to drink- e.g., chooses water instead of wine at a meal, or doesn’t drink while on a diet. 6. Never drinks and drives. 7. Never drinks when there’s responsible work to be done. 8. Knows exactly how much he/she can drink without losing control. 9. Enjoys socializing for its own sake, with or without alcohol. 10. Knows that drinking is a personal choice, not the result of some external force, reason, or cause.
