Help CAGE questionnaire for 3 beers per week?

I was wondering if i need to ask CAGE in anyone and everyone who drinks alcohol even if he/she drinks 2-3 beers/week. Its going to be embarrassing for the SP dont you think?

first of all there is no embarassment for SP if you ask so plz don't worry abt that part. Secondly, 3-4 drinks/week are bad if it is taken in the single day because then it becomes binge drinking. some ppl wouldn't drink at all during the week but drink like this at the weekend so we need to ask CAGE.
