Do you drink too much? Test your own alcohol consumption with the AUDIT test.
The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) is a simple ten-question test developed by the World Health Organization to determine if a person's alcohol consumption may be harmful.
Questions 1–3 deal with alcohol consumption, 4–6 relate to alcohol dependence and 7–10 consider alcohol-related problems. A score of 8 or more in men (7 in women) indicates a strong likelihood of hazardous or harmful alcohol consumption. A score of 20 or more is suggestive of alcohol dependence and specialized treatment is needed.
These ten questions are about your use of alcohol during the past 12 months.
One drink is approximately equivalent to:
- a small beer (0,25- 0,3 l)
- a glass of wine (0,1- 1/8 l)
- 2 shots of spirits (2 cl)
