This is a screening test designed to help you determine if you have a problem with alcohol. Read through the following questions about your use of alcoholic beverages during the past year. In the questions, a "drink" is defined as 10 oz. of beer, 4 oz. of wine, or 1.25 oz. of 80 proof liquor. Select the most appropriate answer for each of the questions. When you are finished, click the 'compute' button for your test results.

If your score is 8 or more, you are at risk for alcohol-related problems. For a more in-depth assessment, visit the Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program or see your healthcare provider.
My result: 15

My result 12, Imust try harder in future :D

The way this test and its questions are structured it would be likely that the older you are (and therefore less socialising/drinking with friends) the lower your score should be. In my twenties (out every night clubbing) I would have rated the roof of this test but am decidedly less socially active these days.

11. Iwould have thought it much higher. And the way some of the questions were phrased made them difficult to answer;i.e. after a night of drinking do you need one to get going the next day? Dont need one at all . I am more likely to have one if I havent been boozing it up lately. And I DO make my simoleans by selling fine alcohol.

LOL, then I dont know what you would have called Southern Gentlemen like my Grandfather, who considered Beer a drink for babies and Bavarians. For them, the only manly drink was whisky (Bourbon, Rye, Scotch, Irish, etc.) and woe to the idiot who added water, ice, or anything else! And you better hold it to ;) They considered it effete to 'not hold one's liquor' , ie puke, stumble around, or act like an idiot. If they werent Celtic, what were they? :D

NormanBlood
Thursday, April 15th, 2004, 09:49 PM
Never said anything bad about liquor ;) Love whisky myself but to me speaking illy of beer is just plain blasphemous. But then again all the early Euro peoples of Canada...we sure loved our beer :P


If they werent Celtic, what were they?

Half-Celts if they didn't appreciate a good pint of beer :D j/k

Anyway, you girls around here... you seem to be champions on drinking... :D

I only got 11. I thought I would get a higher score. I had mostly monthly or less, but it is usually quite a lot of drinks that go down when I do drink and mainly spirits, my favourite being the fantastic Glenlivet, which is simply heaven. ;):D I just need a nice and cosy Scottish pub with some fun people, but I would probably regret it if I saw a few lads with great teeths like Shane MacGowan's...I like his music though :)...Jacques Brel or some Jazz will do as well.

It is understandable that I got a low score, as I drink mainly with other people and at the typical occasions when most people drink. I think that I would have got around 20 or more when I was 18-19 years old.

I wish one could enjoy the drinking more. It is worst at pubs in England where one has to go out early and come home early, pay plenty for little alcohol, and not get drunk at all! :thumbsdwn I read that is going to change though. The best is, I guess, to drink with friends before going somewhere else. The problem is that you are sometimes stuck at the pre-party.

Now that we are discussing life-enriching substances, has anyone here tried a spacecake? If so, how did you find it?

Stupid trick questions!! You have to be a lawyer not to incrimminate yourself. Another thing, "a beer" is now 24 ounces, not 10. We have supersized it in the USA. My dog would get a seven if he only lapped up spilled beer. I got a 14 but I am disputing this test and the results.

A 9, but I could proudly say I've never had a hang-over even though I've been drunk off my ass on many occassions. No injuries or loss of memory.

It runs in the family. ;)
