Creeping Alcoholism -Test

Traditionally, alcoholism has been thought of as something that is black and white: you either are or are not an alcoholic. We don't think such thinking serves us very well. There is a tiny alcoholic living inside each one of us, and the real question is not whether we are alcoholics or not. Instead, we should ask what kind of alcoholics we are.

The Creeping Alcoholism -Test looks at alcoholism from that perspective and helps you understand how tight your little relationship is with your dear friend alcohol.
