1) First of all, please complete the self-assessment, Check Your Health Risks Regarding Alcohol and Drug Use, in the textbook (page 336) and post a comment that addresses the following:
Which of the 15 items really made you think about either your alcohol drinking or the alcohol drinking of a friend or acquaintance (no names necessary)? Please explain.
2) Next, do you believe that total abstinence from alcohol is the only solution for people with alcohol use disorder? Why or why not?
3) Now that you have reflected on these questions, you need to return to the Discussion Forum at a later time and reply to another student’s posted comment. Your reply has to be directly relevant to the other student’s posting (vague and general replies like “I think that’s cool what you posted” do not count).
