The following test is based on few simple questions that can help you identifying and measuring your alcohol addiction level. It's a generic test, which does not investigate the specific type of abuse (wine, beer, liquors etc.). Of course it has no diagnostic value and its result is purely indicative. Alcohol abuse is clearly dangerous, like every other addiction, but the worst thing about it is that it can also hurt innocent people in many ways, especially if it's associated with a reckless personality. Tragic news stories remind us about that all the time...
