Are you an alcoholic? 20 questions

I really didn’t know if I was an alcoholic until I answered these 20 AA questions. I kinda vaguely thought I might have a drinking problem. I answered three or more of these questions Yes which is supposed to mean you are definitely an alcoholic.

Couple years off the bottle, had a one off slip, and a few years before that.

Yes I am, And that’s ok. I stay away from it now.

I remember flashes and glimpses of years of hard drinking. I was so bad I would wake up to the shakes in the middle of the night, just needing a few extra shots too sleep.

I’m lucky I didn’t kill myself, or anyone else with my recklessness.

I know I’m an alcoholic. I do my best to avoid the sauce these days.

Because when I get too saucy I’ll tell you all I love you. And if I get saucier I lose my marbles!

Old AA line that always stuck with me.

“Some people drink to unwind. I drink to completely unravel.” Lol

Yeah! That’s very true for a lot of alcoholics.

I used to get drunk to numb the voices. It took me years to realize it just made everything worse. Two trips to rehab knocked my hard noggin really well!

Same here beetle buddy, I also drank the most when unmedicated and symptomatic.

Hard to hear voices when you’re in a coma from alcohol poisoning.
