In societies worldwide, alcohol plays a major role in traditions, customs, celebrations, and religious ceremonies, and is regularly integrated into popular music and culture. Though many individuals enjoy alcohol without problems, some struggle with the impact alcohol has on their lives.

If alcohol is affecting your life and you are thinking about change, you have already taken the first step. This guide will help you understand alcohol, figure out if you need to modify your drinking, and decide how to deal with the actual process of change. If you are at all concerned about your alcohol use, this guide is for you.

Should you decide to change, this guide can help you begin your journey. You can use this guide in any way you feel most comfortable. The guide will keep track of your answers during any single session and allow you to print your results whenever you wish during that session. This website will keep no records of your session(s) and your identity will remain anonymous at all times. Your answers are stored only temporarily, and will be erased if you close or refresh your browser. Therefore it will be in your best interest to allocate approximately 20 uninterrupted minutes to complete this toolkit. Again, your participation will remain anonymous and this website will collect no personal identifying information of any kind.

Clicking on "Let's Get Started" below will take you to the fist page of the guide. On each subsequent page, you will see navigation buttons (Score / Continue and Previous) that will help you move through the site. The button called "Get Summary Report," that appears once you begin answering questions, will open a pop-up window that summarizes your answers to the questions presented up to that point. You may click on this button at any time, or at the end of the questions. Again, you will be able to print this summary if you want.
