Interactive Tool: Do You Have a Drinking Problem? - What does this tool measure?


Try to answer the questions as accurately as possible. Many people who have a drinking problem tend to underestimate how much they drink.

This tool can help you see if your drinking is dangerous or unhealthy or if you may be addicted to alcohol. Based on your answers, the tool calculates how many signs of alcohol problems you have and suggests whether you are likely to have a drinking problem. The answers to your test are confidential.

Although this tool alone is not enough for diagnosis, it may help you decide to seek help from your doctor.
