Am I an addict?

Diagnosis  of addiction requires a thorough examination by a professional. However, below is a short self­-assessment questionnaire as a first step to finding out whether you have the disease of  addiction. When answering the questions, apply them to your chosen substance or behavior. For example, if   you go shopping to make yourself better, apply each question to your shopping habits. If you have more than one habit, apply the questions to the one that affects you most frequently. You might be guilty and ashamed of your behavior but it’s important to be honest – do not minimize or maximize your problem. Addiction is easy to deny, and even the most experienced practitioners don’t fully understand its nature.

  1. Do you continuously use the substance or act out the addictive behavior, despite knowing there are harmful consequences? Yes/No
  2. Do you sneak or hide consumption or behavior, for example, covering up how much money you have spent/gambled, or sneaking away to purge after a meal? Yes/No
  3. Do you lie to friends, colleagues, family or doctors to disguise the behavior? Yes/No
  4. Have you had accidents, or been in dangerous situations due to consumption or addictive behavior? Yes/No
  5. Have you lost a job due to the addictive behavior/consumption? Yes/No
  6. Have any relationships with friends or loved ones been broken as a result of the behavior/consumption? Yes/No
  7. Do you minimize your use of the substance or addictive behavior (i.e. pretend you use/do less than you actually do)? Yes/No
  8. Have you tried to stop and failed? Yes/No
  9. Do you have continuous feelings of shame, guilt or remorse? Yes/No
  10. Are you always thinking about the next high, the next meal or bet? Yes/No

If you have answered ‘Yes’ to more than two of these questions, it’s likely that you have an addictive personality, and it’s recommended that you see a professional to get an assessment. (This questionnaire is only a basic guide, and cannot replace a professional evaluation)

Addiction is always progressive, and the consequences become more painful and more dangerous with time. If you have already crossed the line identified by the questionnaire, you’ll need support. There are normally deeper psychological reasons for the use of substances or behaviours to make oneself feel better, but until you address the addiction you won’t be able to examine those underlying issues and get better.
