Am I an Addict?Only you can answer this question.

This may not be an easy thing to do.  All through our usage, we told ourselves, “I can handle it.”   Even if this was true in the beginning, it is not so now.  The drugs handled us. We lived to use and used to live.  Very simply, an addict is a person whose life is controlled by drugs.

Perhaps you admit you have a problem with drugs, but you don’t consider yourself an addict.

All of us have preconceived ideas about what an addict is.  There is nothing shameful about being an addict once you begin to take positive action.  If you can identify with our problems, you may be able to identify with our solution. The following questions were written by recovering addicts in Narcotics Anonymous. If you have doubts about whether or not you’re an addict, take a few moments to read the questions below and answer them as honestly as you can.
