Are you worried you may have an issue with alcohol or drugs? If needed, substitute the word drink or drinking for any addiction.

If you answer YES to four or more question. You are probably having trouble with alcohol and/or drugs. 

1. Have you ever decided to stop drinking for a week or so, but only lasted for a few days?
2. Do you wish people would mind their own business about your drinking  – stop telling you what to do?
3. Have you ever switched from one kind of drink to another in the hope that this would keep you from getting drunk?
4. Have you had to have an eye-opener upon awakening during the past year?
5. Do you envy people who can drink without getting into trouble?
6. Have you had problems connected with drinking in the past year?
7. Has your drinking caused trouble at home?
8. Do you ever try to get ‘extra’ drinks at a party because you do not get enough?
9. Do you tell yourself that you can stop drinking any time you want to, even though you keep getting drunk when you don’t mean to?
10. Have you missed days of work or school because of drinking?
11. Do you have ‘blackouts’?
12. Have you ever felt that your life would be better if you did not drink?
