Default Do's and dont't for a Pt who came to ER

Hey... I hv a doubt regarding if a pt presents in ER and not OPD say for eg a young female wid RLQ pain, vomiting and also vaginal bleeding and she smokes and drinks so do I still need to ask CAGE questions and ask her if she wants to quit smoking or drinking (given d fact dat she's in pain and m suspecting acute appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy, ovarian torsion which are emergencies) ? How to handle such cases? Pls reply
