1) Have you ever felt the need to cut down on your drinking or substance use?
2) Have you felt annoyed by someone telling you to cut back or criticizing you for your
drinking or substance use?
3) Have you ever felt guilty about your drinking or substance use?
4) Have you ever felt the need to drink or use substances to steady your nerves or get rid
of a hangover?
