In our Australian culture drinking alcohol to celebrate or socialize is an accepted and everyday practice, and many people can enjoy the mood alteringaffects of alcohol without any negative consequences or resulting problems.
However for some people, and some families, using alcohol in moderation is just not possible. For reasons that are becoming increasingly clear though scientific study, some people have a sensitivity to alcohol that results in the development of a dependency that evolves into the disease of alcohol addiction or alcoholism.
The goal of our alcoholism test is not to provide a definitive answer as to whether you, or someone you care about, has an alcohol addiction, or is struggling with alcoholism. It is an opportunity to raise your awareness about the impact that alcohol is having on your life, or the life of someone you care about.

Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
