Have I Been Affected?

Millions of people are affected by someone else's drinking. Because alcoholism is a "family disease", it affects each member of the family in a different way. We learn to anticipate when problems are going to happen, and we change our behavior to avoid a fight, or to prevent an ugly scene. These changes are subtle, and we may not feel them happening. Try one of the following quizzes to see if Al-Anon may be able to help.

  • Are you the relative (spouse, child, parent, brother, sister, other relative or friend of a problem drinker?
  • Are you an adult with an alcoholic parent, stepparent or grandparent?
  • Are you a teenager with an alcoholic parent, step-parent or grand-parent?
