No one physically needs to drink everyday.

If they have developed a dependancy then they will go into withdrawl if they stop drinking suddenly, and sometimes die.

You would have to drink a lot a bottle of whiskey every day for a long time to die from the DTs.
And even then you wouldn't suddenly die you could get treatment.

Re: 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.

When you HAVE to have a couple of beers first thing in the morning or you're violently ill, and most of your family and friends can't stand to be around you anymore unless they are drunks too, you might have a small alcohol problem.

A 6 pack a over the course of the evening is normal for alot of people. The above aint.

Its a bullshit addiction. I've drank for months on end. The only side effect of quitting is one bad nights sleep. Besides when dealing with douchebags everyday, drinking beats using pharmaceuticals to get over the stress of being around back stabbing assholes trying to get each other and you fired. Ive seen plenty on prozac, zanax, zoloft. That shut is fucked up. I'll take beer thirty instead.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
No, you're NOT an alcoholic.

You need to drink a beer with alcohol in it to be one. Not that piss water you're drinking.

Man up and have a real beer or three at night and you'll not only achieve a man's buzz right quick, but you'll overcome your shitty beer habit.

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
If you drink 1 beer every day and you cant stop it ( you feel the need to drink ) you are alcoholic. ( Doctor said me last week. )

Alcoholism not necessary means you are a smelly hobo under the bridge.

Some people can control it. However i think talking to a doctor or a psyhologist would be helpful. It is better to act now. Dont wait until your health ( and social connections ) go bad.

Maybe something missing in your life and you replace it with alcohol.

You created this thread which means you dont want to put your head in the sand. It is a very good start.

And until you find out what to do try to resist. Dont drink more!

Good Luck!

Re: Does this make me an alcoholic?
I, also, would like to suggest a 'real' beer. Drink something like a good quality porter. An actual drink that is worth something to your body, gives both the protection from lots of vitamins and antioxidents, just as good as red wine, and is a superior product.

Don't swill that canned crap. Never drink hard liquor. And take the niacin and other suggested supplements that are suggested in the many sites which have great information on this problem.

What you've done is gotten yourself into a habit, that's all. Drink a big 32oz water after your first beer and see how much of the second one you can do without.


You're okay. You just need to shake it up and shake it out. Good that you're paying attention to yourself, now take the actions which will result in an improvement.
