Find out if you’re an alcoholic

Do you have a problem with alcohol?

Are you worried that you or someone you love may have a problem with their alcohol consumption? Take this simple yes or no quiz that was created by the Royal College of Psychiatrists to find out if you have a problem with alcohol.

  1. Do you ever worry that you drink too much?
  2. Have friends or family expressed concern about you and your drinking habits?
  3. Do you find you can drink a lot without becoming drunk?
  4. Do you need to drink more to have the same effect?
  5. Have you tried to stop drinking, but found that you were unable to stop fore more than a few days?
  6. Do you carry on drinking even though it is interfering with your work, family or relationships?
  7. Do you need a drink to start the day?
  8. Do you get shaky, sweaty or anxious a few hours after your last drink?
  9. Have you experienced blanks in your memory, where you can’t remember what happened for a period of hours or days?
  10. Is your judgement affected by alcohol, so that you do things that you normally wouldn’t, such as starting fights or arguments, having unprotected sex with strangers or becoming violent?

If you answered yes to a few or more of these questions, the results indicate that you may have a problem with alcohol. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you think you have a problem with alcohol. You can attend Alcoholic Anonymous meetings for free and they meet regularly all across the country.
