Is alcohol a problem in your life?

Ask yourself the C.A.G.E. questions:
- Have you ever felt that you should Cutdown on your drinking?
- Have people Annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
- Have you ever felt bad or Guilty about your drinking?
- Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover (Eye opener)?
