There are specific warning signs of alcoholism. One quick test that psychotherapists and addiction counselors administer is called the C.A.G.E TEST. It is a quick test consisting of 4 questions to determine if there is a likelihood that drinking may be a problem. The questions are:
According the C.A.G.E TEST, ONE “yes” indicates a strong likelihood there’s a problem and need for further evaluation. TWO or more “yes” answers indicate a definite problem with alcohol and/or drugs.
Another test commonly used to assess Alcoholism used by John Hopkins University Hospital Baltimore, MD, consists of 20 questions. Here is a sample of those questions.
If you answered yes to one question, there is a definite warning that you may be an alcoholic. Three or more questions you are alcoholic.
