How do I know if I have a problem with drugs and/or alcohol?
Ask yourself some simple questions…
- Do I need to drink or use drugs more to get the buzz or high I want more than once?
- Do I spend more money or time drinking or using drugs that I planned to more than once?
- Have I missed work or school because I was “partying” the night before more than once?
- Do I get into arguments with friends or family members because of my drinking or drugging?
- Do I continue to drink and/or use drugs even though I have a medical (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.) or psychological (depression, anxiety, etc.) problem?
- If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a problem.
I’m worried that people will find out, how do I deal with that?
