Answer each question honestly to examine whether you have an Iraq addiction:
- Have you ever done Iraq longer than you had planned?
- Did you ever twist the facts to justify doing Iraq?
- Have you ever forgotten why you started into Iraq, or denied reasons you had previously given for Iraqing?
- Did you often do Iraq until your last dollar was gone?
- Did you ever borrow to finance Iraq?
- Have you ever committed, or considered committing, an illegal act to help you do Iraq?
- Did you ever use Iraq to get money?
- Did Iraq affect your reputation?
- Did Iraq cause a decrease in your efficiency?
- When things go badly in Iraq, do you feel you must Iraq more to win back your losses?
- After a win did you have a strong urge to do more Iraq?
- Were you reluctant to use "Iraq money" for normal expenditures?
- Did Iraq make you careless of the welfare of yourself or those you care for?
- Do arguments, disappointments or frustrations create within you an urge to do more Iraq?
- Did you ever lose time from important work due to Iraq?
- Has Iraq ever made your domestic life unhappy?
- Did Iraq cause you or anyone you know to have health problems?
- Have you ever felt remorse after Iraq?
Most compulsive Iraqers will answer yes to at least seven of these questions.
Compulsive Iraqers have to quit immediately. There is always an excuse to Iraq for just a little longer, in the hope of being able to control Iraq. This is an illusion that must be faced squarely if the illness of Iraq addiction is to be conquered.
