Spent a lot of time drinking? Or being sick or getting over other aftereffects? *
Wanted a drink so badly you couldn't think of anything else? *
Found that drinking - or being sick from drinking - often interfered with taking care of your home or family? Or caused job troubles? Or school problems? *
Continued to drink even though it was causing trouble with your family or friends? *
Given up or cut back on activities that were important or interesting to you, or gave you pleasure, in order to drink? *
More than once gotten into situations while or after drinking that increased your chances of getting hurt (such as driving, swimming, using machinery, walking in a dangerous area, or having unsafe sex)? *
Continued to drink even though it was making you feel depressed or anxious or adding to another health problem? Or after having had a memory blackout? *
Had to drink much more than you once did to get the effect you want? Or found that your usual number of drinks had much less effect than before? *
