Drug and alcohol problems can affect every one of us regardless of age, sex, race, marital status, place of residence, income level, or lifestyle.
You may have a problem with drugs or alcohol, if:
- You can’t predict whether or not you will use drugs or get drunk.
- You believe that in order to have fun you need to drink and/or use drugs.
- You turn to alcohol and/or drugs after a confrontation or argument, or to relieve uncomfortable feelings.
- You drink more or use more drugs to get the same effect that you got with smaller amounts.
- You remember how last night began, but not how it ended, so you’re worried you may have a problem.
- You have trouble at work or in school because of drinking or drug use.
- You make promises to yourself or others that you’ll stop getting drunk or using drugs.
- You feel alone, scared, miserable, and depressed.
