Am I addicted?
Have you been wondering if you’re drinking too much or taking too many drugs? Or whether you’re gambling too much or have too many urges to play computer games, surf the Internet or look for sex contacts? Or maybe you’re worried about someone close to you?
People don’t develop addictions from one day to the next. How quickly that happens depends on the individual and on the substance or activity. It also depends on the surrounding environment. If you hang out with people that drink a lot or take drugs often, it can be harder to draw a line for yourself.
Signs of addiction
- loss of control
- exceeding the limits you’ve set for yourself
- drinking, taking drugs or gambling more often than you were planning to
- finding yourself fantasising about or planning such activities too often
- getting into problems or violating social, behavioural or health norms
- feeling withdrawal symptoms if you must do without
