Will Your Behavior Influence Your Child?

• Do you know about and use methods to cope with minor aches and pains other than "taking something"?

• Do you routinely take Nembutol, Seconal, Dalmane, Nytol, Sominex or some other sleeping pill to fall asleep? Do you routinely use something to stay awake (amphetamines, coffee, coke, No Doz)?

• Do your children ever hear their parents arguing about one or the other having had too much to drink?

• When you begin a diet, is your first thought to obtain diet pills to help you with your plan?

• Do you smoke cigarettes? How many packs a day?

• Is drinking often the topic of conversation in your home?

• Does your group of friends share prescriptions or any other medicines that have "worked" for them?

• Have you ever warned your children about smoking while you were smoking? How about drinking?

• Do you smoke marijuana? When, and how often?

• Do you know the difference between a social drinker and an abusive drinker? Is there a difference? What?

• How much coffee do you drink a day? Do you ever get nervous or edgy from drinking a lot of coffee? Do you crave a cup of coffee to wake up in the morning? Are you crabby without it?

• Do you use alcohol or other drugs to comfort yourself when you're depressed or feeling down?

• Do you unconsciously gravitate toward social functions where there is a lot of drinking, and away from social functions where there is little or no drinking?
