1. Do you get drunk or high regularly?
2. Do you think about or plan your substance use in advance?
3. Do you get drunk or high alone?
4. Is your use making you sick or causing on-going physical symptoms?
5. Do you lie about how much you use or how often you are using?
6. Have you stopped doing things you used to enjoy so that you can get drunk or high?
7. Have your eating habits, sleep patterns, or mental abilities changed?
8. When you’re not high, do you feel depressed, hopeless, run-down, or unmotivated?
9. Do you have blackouts or memory gaps?
10. Do you have to use more of the same substance to recapture your earlier highs?
