How you can tell if someone is a non-alcoholic:

Answering the following four questions can help you find out if you or a loved one has a soda drinking problem:

  • Have you ever felt you should cut down on your soda drinking?
  • Have people annoyed you by criticizing your soda drinking?
  • Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your soda drinking?
  • Have you ever had a drink of soda first thing in the morning to steady your nerves?

One “yes” answer suggests a possible soda drinking problem. More than one “yes” answer means it is highly likely that a problem exists. If you think that you or someone you know might have a soda drinking problem, it is important to see a doctor or other health care provider (perhaps a dentist?) right away. They can help you determine if a soda drinking problem exists and plan the best course of action.

  1. I don’t understand the point behind non-alcoholic beer. It tastes like beer (which I can’t stand) and you get no buzz from it. I thought O’Doules would be out of business now but they seem to be still around.

    Now why hasn’t some enterprising person started developing the micro-non-alcohoic beer to compete with O’Doules?

    • I searched for some n.a. micro brews – google results listed lots of root beer!

  2. I’m a milkaholic. Often I need chocolate chip cookies (chocoholic) to go along with with my milkohol too.

    • “Milkahol”
