How Do I Know If I Have a Substance Use Problem?

If you’re wondering whether you’re using drugs or alcohol too much, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you think you should cut back? Do you feel like your substance use is getting out of control?
  • Are drugs or alcohol taking up more and more of your time and emotional energy? Do you lie about your use, spend a lot of time talking about it or thinking of ways to hide it? Also, do you think you need drugs or alcohol to have a good time?
  • Are you neglecting or postponing activities? Are you skipping family functions, avoiding friends who don’t use, giving up sports or recreation you used to enjoy, or putting off looking for a job?
  • Do you have a greater tolerance to drugs or alcohol? Are you using more at one time or using more often?
  • Do you use more than you intended or have trouble not using in certain situations, like not being able to stop for a day or two while you’re on vacation? Also, have you quit using one substance but continue using others?
  • Do you find yourself using as soon as you wake up to “cure your hangover” or “tackle the day”?
  • Are you taking more risks, like driving under the influence, going into dangerous situations, or engaging in unsafe sexual behaviors?
  • Are you experiencing more negative consequences in your life? Increased difficulty with family or friends? Legal issues? School or workplace issues?
  • Are the people who care about you commenting on or criticizing your alcohol or drug use?
  • Have you tried to reduce, control or eliminate your alcohol or drug use but had little or no success?
  • Are you experiencing physical symptoms from quitting, such as sweating, nausea, or vomiting? Do you have emotional symptoms like anxiety, irritability, or cravings?
  • Do you feel bad or guilty about your alcohol and/or drug use? Do you continue to use even though you know it’s having negative effects on your health and well-being?
