Are You Troubled By Someone’s Drinking?

Alateen Is For You!

Millions of people are affected by the excessive drinking of someone close. The following questions are designed to help you decide whether or not you need Al-Anon:


1. Do you worry about how much someone else drinks?

2. Do you have money problems because of someone else’s drinking?

3. Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else’s drinking?

4. Do you feel if the drinker loved you, he or she would
stop drinking to please you?

5. Do you blame the drinker’s behavior on his or her companions?

6. Are plans frequently upset or canceled or meals delayed
because of the drinker?

7. Do you make threats, such as, "If you don’t stop
drinking, I’ll leave you"?

8. Do you secretly try to smell the drinker’s breath?

9. Are you afraid to upset someone for fear it will set off
a drinking bout?

10. Have you been hurt or embarrassed by a drinker’s behavior?

11. Are holidays and gatherings spoiled because of drinking?

12. Have you considered calling the police for help in fear
of abuse?

13. Do you search for hidden alcohol?

14. Do you often ride in a car with a driver who has been
drinking?

15. Have you refused social invitations out of fear or anxiety?

16. Do you sometimes feel like a failure when you think of
the lengths you have gone to in order to control the drinker?

other problems would be solved?
