Alateen is for young people and teenagers whose lives have been affected and impacted by another person’s alcohol drinking. Sometimes the active drinking has stopped, or even the active drinker might not live with you anymore. Even although the alcohol may be gone, and the alcoholic gone or recovering and recuperating in Alcoholics Anonymous - AA, you are still affected. A lot of us have received help and assistance Alateen or Al-Anon.

The following twenty questions are to help you decide whether or otherwise Alateen or Al-Anon is for you personally.

1. Do you believe no one could possibly understand how you feel?

2. Do you cover up your real feelings by pretending you don’t care?

3. Do you feel neglected, uncared for, or unloved?

4. Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else’s drinking or what’s happening in your home?

5. Do you stay out of the house as much as possible because you hate it there?

6. Are you afraid or embarrassed to bring your friends home?

12. Do you make promises about behavior, such as I’ll “get better grades,” or “keep my room clean,” or “do anything you want,” in exchange for a promise that the drinking and fighting will stop?

13. Do you feel that if the drinker loved you, she or he would stop drinking?

14. Do you ever threaten or actually hurt yourself to scare the drinker into saying, “I’m sorry,” or “I love you”?
