|1.||Have you ever decided to stop drinking for a week or so, but only lasted for a couple of 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 a drink in the morning during the past year?|
|5.||Do you envy people who can drink without getting into difficulties?|
|6.||Have you had problems connected with drinking during the past year?|
|7.||Has your drinking caused trouble at home?|
|8.||Do you ever try to get ‘extra’ drinks at a party?|
|9.||Do you tell yourself you can stop drinking any time you want to, even though you keep drinking more than you meant to?|
|10.||Have you missed days off work because of drinking?|
|11.||Do you have ‘blackouts’?
A blackout is when there are drinking times or days you cannot remember.
|12.||Have you ever felt that your life would be better if you did not drink as much as you do?|
Did you answer YES four times or more? If so, you are probably in trouble with alcohol use.
Excessive alcohol consumption is a life-threatening habit which you can stop. Why wouldn’t you take the opportunity?
