    Here's a set of 4 questions for you to answer. Enjoy. ;)

    a) Have you ever felt the need to cut down on drinking?
    b) Have you ever felt annoyed by criticism of your drinking?
    c) Have you ever felt guilty about your drinking?
    d) Have you ever taken a morning eye-opener?

    I can only say yes to a and c, so I guess I'm not doing (or have not been doing) that bad. And even then, it wasn't that much that I needed to cut down from.

    Ahh...the famous "CAGE" screening questionnaire....well known to all doctors, nurses, med students, EMTs and, of course, alcoholics.

    Do you know the 3 follow-up acronyms for alcohol screening?

    They're not mutually exclusive, you know.... ;)

    I think that I'm a med student, but that may just be an alcohol-induced delusion.... :D

    HALT:
    "Do you drink to get high?"
    "Do you drink alone?"
    "Do you look forward to drinking?"
    "Have you noticed that you have developed a tolerance to alcohol?"

    BUMP:
    "Have you ever blacked-out from drinking?"
    "Have you ever used alcohol in excessively unplanned amounts?" i.e. couldn't stop
    "Do you drink for medicinal reasons?" i.e. depression
    "Do you find yourself protecting your supply of alcohol?" i.e. buying "extra" just in case company stops by

    FATAL DT
    "Is there a family hx of alcohol problems?"
    "Ever been a member of AA?"
    "Do you think you are an alcoholic?"
    "Have you ever attempted suicide or had suicidal thoughts?"
    "Have you ever had any legal problems because of alcohol?"
    "Do you ever drive while intoxicated?"
    "Do you ever use tranquilizers to steady your nerves?"

    You know, it seems that there are quite a few science/med/engineering students that post here. Has anyone else noticed that?

    Yes, but it wasn't from a very great amount, just a bottle of whiskey/vodka every week or so.
    I never got any, since I did it alone in my room.
    Yes, mostly about the money I was wasting on it when I didn't really have money to waste.
    Nope, not for me.

    I suppose I'm a CG. Centigram, Cheltenham & Gloucester, coast guard, Republic of Congo, or chorionic gonadotropin? I don't know which fits best.

    I also appear to be Al:
