How to Recognize Addiction in Yourself

Part of the Addiction and Recovery For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Dealing with an addiction means you stop wasting energy and time on self-deception. Take a good, hard look at yourself and be perfectly honest. Are any of these statements true for you?

  • Your substance-seeking behavior is increasing (you are going to places where you can score), or your compulsion to do the problematic behavior (such as gambling) is increasing.

  • Your main reason for living is using.

  • You lose touch with important aspects of your life, such as friends, work, school, and family responsibilities, because of substance use or addictive behavior.
