  • Been unable to control how much you drink or use once you’ve started?
  • Failed to meet commitments or participate in regular activities because of drinking or using?
  • Experienced withdrawal symptoms from your drinking or drug use such as headaches, nausea, tremors or the “shakes”?
  • Had to take a drink or a hit in the morning after a heavy session to get going?
