High-Functioning Alcoholism: Am I an Alcoholic? Questionnaire

Are you questioning whether or not your drinking habits could be categorized as “high-functioning alcoholism”? The term itself suggests that even though heavy alcohol consumption is present, productivity and success are still being achieved.

While this type of drinking can sound harmless – with some individuals having the misconception that because they’re managing to succeed despite their alcohol abuse, it’s no cause for concern – the truth is a high-functioning alcoholic may be just as at risk (or more so) when it comes to health complications due to overconsumption.

To answer the question you’re asking: Am I an Alcoholic? Take the quiz below.


1. Do you find yourself drinking more than others around you?

2. Have you ever felt the urge to reduce or stop drinking, but found it difficult to do so?

3. Do you find yourself needing an alcoholic beverage after a stressful day at work or with family responsibilities?

4. Are there times when you don’t remember what happened the night before?

5. Do you hide your alcohol consumption from friends, family, or coworkers?

6. Have you ever been in trouble with the law due to drinking-related incidents?

7. Are your relationships affected by your drinking habits?

8. Do you lie about how much alcohol you consume?

9. Do you think that your drinking habits are putting you in danger or affecting your physical health?

10. Have you ever experienced withdrawal symptoms, such as shakes or anxiety, when not drinking?

If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, then it’s time to consider the possibility that you may have high-functioning alcoholism.

High-functioning alcoholics usually appear to lead normal lives and often go undetected by their friends and family due to their ability to maintain work, relationships, and responsibilities despite the fact they are abusing alcohol.
