The G Scale
Addiction to glue is not hopeless, although people addicted to glue are, in general, hopeless. The glue addict seldom changes his behavior alone. Although he must have the will to take the bag off his head, it is usually a friend or relative who cleans him up with nail polish remover and drags him to the commitment hearing, or dumps his limp and reeking carcass on the steps of the local police station.

Are you a glue addict? Take the following test and see. And remember, kicking the glue jones is something you CAN do -- if you only stick to it.
