Have you wondered if happy hour is perhaps becoming a little less happy for the people around you? Or if you should have passed on the last round of drinks? Not sure if you're stil able to control things or if they are controlling you? Ask yourself these four questions:
- Have you tried to gain control by cutting down, or changing types of alcohol, or drugs?
- Do you become angry or annoyed when someone suggests that you are using drugs or alcohol too much?
- Do you feel guilt or remorse about your behavior or things that you said, during or after your use?
- At any time of day, do you take a drink or drug to even things out or to make things seem manageable?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be helpful for you to have a chemical health assessment to further explore your use and your options for getting help.
