The
C.A.G.E. test is a classic test to see if you are an addict (most famously used
to help identify alcoholics).  

 

1.
Have you ever felt you should Cut down on the activity?
2. Have people Annoyed you by criticizing your doing the activity?
3. Have you ever felt bad or Guilty about doing the activity?
4. Have you ever done the activity first thing in the morning as an Eye
opener to get yourself started on the day?

 

Of course, the C.A.G.E. test can also be applied to
email, surfing youtube, spending all your time on Facebook, or endless blog
reading.   IF you answer yes to 3 of the
4 questions, you have a problem.   If you
answer yes to 4 of 4, check yourself into the Betty Ford clinic.  Apply the test to your potential addictions
and see what you should watch out for.
