Screening Tool: Alcohol Problems (in Men)

This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you might have problems with alcohol. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help from a health professional if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.


The questionnaire used here is the Fast Alcohol Screening Test (FAST) for men. Looking for the version for women?


Thank you Dr. Ray Hodgson and colleagues for creating this tool.

1. How often do you have EIGHT (8) or more drinks on one occasion?
2. How often during the last year have you been unable to remember what happened the night before because you had been drinking?
3. How often during the last year have you failed to do what was normally expected of you because of drinking?
4. In the last year has a relative or friend, or a doctor or other health worker been concerned about your drinking or suggested you cut down?
