Answer these 20 questions will give you an idea if your drinking patterns are safe, risky or harmful. The test is completely confidential and anonymous; your results are not recorded; and are available only to you. You are not asked for any personal identifying information.

This quiz does not provide a diagnosis of alcohol abuse, alcohol dependence or alcoholism, or what are now considered alcohol use disorders. The results cannot substitute for a full evaluation by a healthcare professional, and should only be used as a guide to understanding your alcohol use and the potential health issues involved with it.

When answering the questions, use the last 12 months of your life as a frame of reference. Be honest with yourself, only you will see the results of your test.
