Hello! Im curious to know as to when do you consider a person to be alcoholic? Every weekend, I drink. It could be beer, whiskey or wine. With a friend, we could finish like a bottle of whiskey or two bottles of wine with some beer. Am I alcoholic?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We cannot say if you are an alcoholic or not. Many alcoholics can't either.

Some people like to let loose a little on weekends and drink more than they should. This doesn't mean they are an alcoholic. But if you feel like your health is suffering or that you can't go a weekend without this kind of drinking then stop and see how you feel. If you feel better without it, then stop. If you feel you can't go without it on a weekend, a health professional can offer you advice.

At the least, cut down over the weekend.

Best,
Susan
