The Alcohol Abstinence Self-Efficacy Scale (AASE) is a 20- or 40-item questionnaire that measures an individual’s self-confidence about his or her ability to avoid drinking.
Each item is scored on a scale from 1 to 5 about how confident the participant is they will not drink alcohol:
1 = Not at all confident
2 = Not very confident
3 = Moderately confident
4 = Very confident
5 = Extremely confident
