Are You an Alcoholic? Here’s the Test

Posted Mar 16 2014 9:31pm

Bob Aronson :

If you find that alcohol may be a problem in your life and your drinking habits are causing problems with and for other people you may have an alcohol problem. If you have ever wondered if you were an alcoholic you can get a very private answer here. We don’t track who takes the test so take it in the privacy of your home and if the results are negative, do something about it. You have control if you are willing to take it.
This blog was first published several years ago. I have updated it and published it again because of the demand for answers to the question, “Am I an alcoholic and how do I find out?”

devil cartoon Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco can have deadly effects on your organs and constitute one of the leading contributors to the need for organ transplantation .  I have long contended that while organ donation  is important we just aren’t making enough headway under the current system.  Too many people are dying because of the organ shortage.  One way of reducing the organ shortage is to diminish the demand.   Healthier living could help achieve that goal. Look at this listing of the short and long term effects of alcohol.

Depending on how much is taken and the physical condition of the individual, alcohol can cause:

  • Slurred speech
  • Drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Headaches
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Distorted vision and hearing
  • Impaired judgment
  • Decreased perception and coordination
  • Unconsciousness
  • Anemia (loss of red blood cells)
  • Coma
  • Blackouts (memory lapses, where the drinker cannot remember events that occurred while under the influence)
