This website tells you if you have a drinking problem

It seems many of our readers are a little concerned that they overindulge a bit too often.

Back at the start of the year, we reported on a new website launched by US health officials that claims to be able to tell users if they have a drinking problem, and how to get help.

Users are invited to take a short survey which determines their level of use or misuse.
