.::Am I an Addict?::.

If you, or someone you know, has a concern as to the question, "Am I an Addict?", then here are 29 questions written by recovering addicts in Narcotics Anonymous to help determine if you are addicted.

Only you can answer this question. This may not be an easy thing to do. All through our usage, we told ourselves, "I can handle it." Even if this was true in the beginning, it is not so now. The drugs, alcohol, overeating, gambling, sex, work, exercise, etc., handled us. We lived to use and used to live.

Very simply, an addict is a person whose life is controlled by their addiction. Their "drug of choice". Perhaps you admit you have a problem with drugs, but you don't consider yourself an addict. All of us have preconceived ideas about what an addict is. There is nothing shameful about being an addict once you begin to take positive action.

The following questions were written by recovering addicts in Narcotics Anonymous and may be helpful in determining if you are an addict, regardless of your "drug of choice"

  1. Do you ever use alone?
  2. Have you ever substituted one drug for another, thinking that one particular drug was the problem?
  3. Have you ever manipulated or lied to a doctor to obtain prescription drugs?
  4. Have you ever stolen drugs or stolen to obtain drugs?
  5. Do you regularly use a drug when you wake up or when you go to bed?
  6. Have you ever taken one drug to overcome the effects of another?
  7. Do you avoid people and places that do not approve of you using drugs?
  8. Have you ever used a drug without knowing what it was or what it would do for you?
  9. Has your job or school performance ever suffered from the effects of your drug use?
  10. Have you ever been arrested as a result of using drugs?
  11. Have you ever lied about what or how much you use?
  12. Do you put the purchase of drugs ahead of your financial responsibilities?
  13. Have you ever tried to stop or control your using?
  14. Have you ever been in a jail, hospital or drug rehabilitation center because of your using?
  15. Does using interfere with your sleeping or eating?
  16. Does the thought of running out of drugs terrify you?
  17. Do you feel it is impossible for you to live without drugs?
  18. Do you ever question your own sanity?
  19. Is your drug use making life at home unhappy?
  20. Have you ever thought you couldn't fit in or have a good time without drugs?
  21. Have you ever felt defensive, guilty, or ashamed about your using?
  22. Do you think a lot about drugs?
  23. Have you had irrational or indefinable fears?
  24. Has using affected your sexual relationships?
  25. Have you ever taken drugs you didn't prefer?
  26. Have you ever used drugs because of pain or stress?
  27. Have you ever overdosed on any drug?
