Default Self - Test - "Do I need Help? "

This is copied from the educational information provided on the site. It is a quick "self test " about where you may be with your alcohol use.

Answering the following four questions can help you find out if you or a loved one has a drinking problem:

> Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?

> Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?

> Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?

> Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?

One "yes" answer suggests a possible alcohol problem.

More than one "yes" answer means it is highly likely that a problem exists.

If you think that you or someone you know might have an alcohol problem, it is important to see a doctor or other health care provider right away. They can help you determine if a drinking problem exists and plan the best course of action.
