Alcoholism is a disease.

It’s when not you as a ‘person’ likes drinking a lot, likes drinking regularly, Getting pissed...it’s when your body and brain is saying, YOU NEED A DRINK.

most alcoholics I know wouldn't be able to leave it at 1 drink a day, but yeah I would call someone who HAS to have 1 drink a day an alcoholic.

What does that even mean?
Define "has to".
Is it different from "wants to"?
Or how about "would like to"?

If drink is repeatedly generating problems at work at home and socially the you are a problem drinker. If you know this but cant stop you are an alcoholic

Would you include someone who's drinking only causes problems for themselves as a problem drinker?

A friend drinks probably 9 days out of 10. They have got worse since before Christmas. Proably have had 3 days not drinking since the start of December.

They generally don't get aggressive but the physical toll will definitely catch up with them at some stage. Drinking in front of their children so much couldn't be good either.

Wouldn't life be wonderful if everything was so simple?

As if you are going to wake up one day with some will power and self control that will magically make your alcoholism disappear. Forget the fact that addiction is usually far more complex than this.

If this were the case then nobody in life would ever have any problems ever. They'd just gain some self control and their problems would just vanish. Sounds like nonsense to me.

Drinking heavily/getting drunk on front of your children should be a criminal offence in my opinion.

These things have a life long psychological impact and can destroy that child's adult life. It certainly changes the person that they should be if they had grown up in a normal household.

Personally, I think there is way to little focus on this.
