Most places give you long screenings and ask a bunch of questions. It comes down to this. When you go out to drink and plan on having two drinks, do you have two drinks? When you drink, do you black out? Have you ever acted in a way that you are ashamed? Do you drink in secret?
The reason I ask these questions is that when you are planning an activity and you can’t stop. Non alcoholics can predict the outcome of their drinking. They have a drink and leave.
Normal drinkers do no black out. A black out is when you have a period of time that you do not remember what you did. You cannot recollect anything.
Normal drinking does not cause you to act like an ass. If every time you drink you act like an ass, you probably should not drink.
What we do in secret we do not want people to know about and why don’t you want people to know how much you drink? If you drink normally you are out in the open. Your alcohol consumption is not a problem that someone would mention to you. If people comment on your drinking, you do it in secret so they won’t comment.
I hope this clears it up.
