It is obvious that you have a concern or even a fear that you have an addiction. Do you think you might have an addiction to drug and alcohol? Take the test for addiction below to better understand where you stand.
Before I quit drugs and alcohol on June 25. 1986 I had a lot of problems with my addictions. When I used to drink alcohol and use drugs, at first I just thought I was just having fun and with experimenting with drugs and alcohol. But later on, I started realizing that things were changing. I was guarding my money to make sure I had enough to supply my addiction.
When I realized that I even resorted to stealing money from my mom to buy beer, marijuana, and whatever else. I was starting to think that I had a problem. Unfortunately, things had to get worse before I could admit that I had a problem. It turned my life upside down, I hope you do not have to take that same road I took because there is help available. Admit, confess, and repent. ~ Bill Greguska
