Thursday Evening, June 27, 1957. Warn Unwary Drinkers May Become Alcoholics WASHINGTON (UP)— Alcoholism creeps up on you. Medical history records a few cases in which people seemed to become alcoholics as soon as they started drinking. Their susceptibility was so great that addiction came virtually with their first drink. But the overwhelming majority of alcoholics slip gradually into|ments followed. iwith Mrs. Emma Smith of Thorntown. The Fellowship class of the Nazarene church met Wednesday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Stolp and Mrs. Ida Hiatt. Devotions were read by Mrs. Nathan Ryan and a business meeting was conducted by the president, Thomas Smith. Social hour and refresh- the stage of uncontrolled habituation, usually after years of what j they regard as "social" or "moderate" drinking. They deny, even to themselves, that they are becoming alcoholics. And they buttress their denials with many popular misconceptions about the nature and symptoms of alcoholism. The best hope of arresting the spread of alcoholism, authorities say, lies in persuading its potential victims to recognize the danger signals and to seek competent help NOW. Danger Signals Listed And what are the danger signals? "The first sign of abnormal drinking," says Dr. Paul H. S'.e- venson, alcoholism expert of the National Institute of SI e n t a 1 Health, "is apt to be a change in the person's drinking pattern." Mrs. Marly Mann, a recovered alcoholic who is now executive director of the National Council on Alcoholism, listed several other "early symptoms" of alcoholism: "Making promises about drinking." Lying about the amount of frequency of drinking. "Gulping" drinks. Taking a drink before going to a party or appointment where drinks undoubtedly will be served. Feeling the necessity to have drinks at certain regular times, and with any special event. Keeling that you "must" have drinks for weariness, nerves, depression or to maintain a "pleasant" disposition "for the sake of others." There is, moreover, one test which you can use to determine whether your dependence on alcohol has reached the stage of an illness from which you require outside help to recover. Jlow la Tell The test is this: Set yourself a daily ration of drinks, not less than one and not more than three. If you're not a daily drinker (ami some alcoholics confine their' drinking to weekends) then the ra-. tion should he for those days on which you do customarily drink. Decide that you will stick to this ration for a fixed period, at least three months, beginning nosv. You must not exceed the raliun under any circumstances whatever — weddings, funerals, sudden death of a friend, inheritance or promotion. No "special occasion.s" or other excuses must be allowed, or you have flunked the test. Any normal drinker, even one used to drinking regularly and fairly heavily, should be able to pa.ss the test. But the chances are a hundred to one against a true alcoholic passing it—or even being willing to try it sincerely.
