CAGE Questionnaire in the last six months

The CAGE acronym represents keywords present in each question.

It stands for: 

1. Cut 

2. Annoyed 

3. Guilty 

4. Eye

The questions represented by the CAGE acronym are:
1. Have you ever felt you should “cut” down on your substance use?
2. Have people “annoyed” you by criticizing your substance use?
3. Have you felt bad or “guilty” about your substance use?
4. Have you ever used a substance first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or start the day (an “eye” opener)?

Your answers will indicate a possible substance abuse problem. Typically, answering “yes” to two or more questions suggests you may have a substance dependency.
