Have you woken up recently with the mother of all hangovers and belly full of regret and thought ‘maybe I have a problem’?
Well, University of Leicester scientists found that by asking patients two questions they were able to correctly identify alcohol and/or drug abuse in 87.2% of cases.
The questions they asked were:
- How often do you have six or more drinks on one occasion?
- As a result of your drinking or drug use, did anything happen in the last year that you wish didn’t happen?
They didn’t explain what kind of answers the people who were abusing alcohol gave, but we imagine if you’re answering yes to these questions every weekend, or more than once a week, then you definitely need to give the party lifestyle a bit of a rest for a while.
