How can you tell if you need help with alcohol, tobacco, other drugs or gambling? These questions can help you decide.
Does the time you spend on your use or activity take you away from family and friends? Do you ever lose track of time and stay away longer than you planned?
Are you having financial problems because so much of your money goes to alcohol, tobacco, other drugs or gambling? Do you often spend more money than planned?
Are you having relationship problems at home or with friends because of your activity? Have family or friends ever told you that they think you have a problem?
What about your responsibilities at home, work, or school? Have you had problems because of your activity or use?
Has your physical health changed? Do you feel tired, sick, or stressed? Do physical activities that used to be normal now wear you out?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to make a change.
If you or someone you know needs help,
there are places to turn.
