CAGE Alcohol Screening Test

Psych Test Homepage

One of the oldest and most popular screening tools for alcohol abuse is the CAGE test, which is a short, four-question test that diagnoses alcohol problems over a lifetime.

Instructions: Keep in mind, the questions refer to your feelings and behaviors over your entire lifetime.

1. Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
2. Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
3. Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
4. Eye opener: Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?
