Does this make me an alcoholic?
I drink 2, 32oz of budlight every night (5 and 1/2 beers). I'm now at the point to where I drink both and not even feel drunk, only tipsy. I normally crave this and can't sleep without it. If I get more alcohol, I drink more.

I've been doing this for 3 years now. Have I become an alcoholic? What can I do for help? I feel stuck.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
no, i dont think your an alcoholic but you should try and cut back, if you cant sleep without it that's a problem.

get busy in the evenings, find an intense hobby, join a martial arts club or something, anything to keep you away from being bored.

good luck.

Compulsive, heavy, habitual or alcoholic drinking can often be lessened or stopped by taking large amounts of Niacin. Google , 'Niacin cure alcoholism'. Cured my bro, who was a blackout drinker for years, now he just drinks socially... crazy.

Yeah youre pretty much an alcolholic, doesnt matter what these other poeple say.
Like you say the more alcohol you have, the more you drink, and you feel the need to drink at least a certain amount each day, that amount being more than medically good for you.
So yes technically youre an alcholic.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
No one can tell you that you are an alcoholic. The way to know without doubt that you are an alcoholic is that alcohol affects your life in a negative way and you still drink.

If you feel stuck and you want to change your behavior you can go to AA, Celebrate Recovery or another similar program so that you can have support in changing your behavior. It's easiest when you are with others.

The suggestion above about niacin sounds like something to try as well.

You are stuck in a habit. Find a new, constructive habit like a hobby. Instead of sitting at home drinking get yourself out and try new things.

Most of all, be kind to yourself and don't beat yourself up.

Much luck.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
If you get physical cravings and can't sleep without drinking, I'd say there's cause for concern.

Try weening yourself down from the volume you are drinking. See if you can cut down to one a day, then from there cut down to smaller volumes (16 oz, 12 oz, etc).

I read all the threads with a hearty chuckle.
I just came home from my AA meeting.
You "normies have no Idea what an alcoholic IS , and how to treat this disease.
I cannot say for sure if you are "one of us" but when you say "craving" that is a keyword. Non alcoholics do not crave it.
Just the fact that you are asking if you have a problem is another sign.Would you look for lost keys if you didn't have keys to lose? It's like asking if you are an alcoholic. You wouldn't ask if there wasn't something there.
Go to an AA meeting...

You will probably be amazed at what you find out about the disease of alcoholism.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
A handy factoid for folks stopping drinking:

[link to www.nlm.nih.gov]

"Delirium tremens can occur when you stop drinking alcohol after a period of heavy drinking, especially if you do not eat enough food.

Delirium tremens may also be caused by head injury, infection, or illness in people with a history of heavy alcohol use.

It is most common in people who have a history of alcohol withdrawal. It is especially common in those who drink 4 - 5 pints of wine or 7 - 8 pints of beer (or 1 pint of "hard" alcohol) every day for several months. Delirium tremens also commonly affects people who have had an alcohol habit or alcoholism for more than 10 years"

"The idea that somehow, someday he will control and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker.The persistence of this illusion is astonishing.

you've lost the ability to get drunk, that's your problem. You built up a tolerance.

If you just drink every 3rd day, you will get so much more drunk, it will be more satisfying and healthy for you.

Moderate drinking may lengthen your life, while too much may shorten it, researchers from Italy report. Their conclusion is based on pooled data from 34 large studies involving more than 1 million people and 94,000 deaths.
According to the data, drinking a moderate amount of alcohol — up to four drinks per day in men and two drinks per day in women — reduces the risk of death from any cause by roughly 18 percent, the team reports in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
