This questionnaire is designed to indicate whether your drinking is harmful, hazardous or dependent.
The questions are about your use of alcohol during the past 12 months.
In questions 2 and 3, a unit of alcohol means 10 grams of alcohol.
For example (approximate values):
1 x bottle of 12% wine = 9 units
1 x pint 5% beer = 3 units
1 x can of 5 % beer, lager, cider = 2 units; 4 cans = 9 units
1 x can of 9 % beer, lager, cider = 4 units; 4 cans = 16 units
1 x 75cl bottle of 40% spirits = 30 units
Please note that the accuracy of the scripts used to formulate your score are not guaranteed, and that use of this online version of this questionnaire is for general inquisitive use only.
