Two of these questions... Be aware that you are at high risk for the development of the disease of chemical dependency.

Three of these questions... You have a problem with substance abuse. See if you can stop using any mood altering drug for 90 days. If you have difficulty with this, you may already be chemically dependent.

Four or more of these questions... You already have many of the critical symptoms of chemical dependence. You or your parents should make an appointment for you to see a chemical dependency professional for a more in depth assessment and for counselling and treatment recommendations. You need to completely abstain from all mood altering drugs but you will need help to do this. Many young people find support by entering into a 12 step recovery programme like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous or an addiction specific youth group.
