Current heavy drinkers were recruited from a general population random-digit dialing telephone survey. Comparisons were made between those who were considering or not considering change. Those considering reducing or quitting their drinking in the next 6 months were asked their reasons for considering change. Respondents considering change had more severe alcohol problems and perceived more risk associated with their drinking as compared with those not considering change. The most common reasons for considering change were health and financial concerns.
