Am i a alcoholic? I have about 6 beers every weekend!?!

Question: Am i a alcoholic!? I have about 6 beers every weekend!!?
I'm just wondering if you guys think I'm a alcoholic! my family thinks i drink to much, i don't drink all week and then after a long week i like to have a few beers on the weekend well about 6! so do u think I'm an alcoholic!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

No!. I drink two or three days a week, around six beers when I do drink (and I don't pound them, I spread them out over four or five hours), and I am not even close to an alcoholic!. Neither are you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can look at it like this: your family may have some valid concerns!. You may want to ask yourself if it really is worth having six beers on the weekend, and if this is an every weekend thing!. My ex is an alcoholic, and he started off drinking the way you describe!. He's not "full blown", he's a binge drinker!. He can't, or doesn't, stop when he starts, and then he does stupid things like tries to drive (three DUIs and a wreck) and gets violent (why he's an ex)!.

There's nothing wrong with having a beer or two here or there, but alcohol can become a problem for some people quickly, and if your family is already voicing concerns, you may want to really think about why they may be doing so!. Does anyone in your family already have problems!? An aunt, uncle, grandparent, etc!? If so, you may be carrying the genes already, and it's just better to not start down that road than try to stop yourself after it's already become a problem!. Just because a person doesn't drink every day doesn't mean they may not have a problem!. It all boils down to what you act like when you drink, what you do when you drink, and whose lives you're affecting!. For me and my kids, drinking has already scarred them for life and unfortunately put them at risk for problems themselves, and made me very skittish about alcohol!. If I could go back in time and redo it all, I would!. Please give some serious thought to it all, so that way you don't have any regrets in the future!. Some people may say "It's all good, you're fine" but only you and your family can really tell, and they're the ones that have to live with you!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcoholism isn't really your quantity of alchol ( but in time it will progress)

It is you dependency on the alcohol!. When you NEED vs Want to have a drink that is when a problem starts!. like I said!.!. it starts small and usually for most will progress!. Not always though!. I new a person who had to had a glass a of bourban as soon as he walked in the door every night after work!. Never had a second!. But he could not start family time until he locked himself in his home office had his drink came down and then he was fine!.
By definition !. he was an Alcoholic!. But his alcoholism never progressed or injured his life or his relationships!.
Which is what alcohol does!.


i agree you arent even close to being alcoholic!. I work in a liquor store I know alchys!. When you have to have a drink to stop shaking youan alcoholic!. If you still buy good beer your not an alcoholic, if you dont pee yourself youre no alcoholic!. I see folks who would rather drink antifreeze than eat, now they are alck's!. You arent even a social drinker yet!. I usually have a drink of wine at least every day on days I dont have to work, i may drink a whole bottle!. But work up to it, good luckWww@FoodAQ@Com

Yeah, I do!. The fact that your six beers on the weekend is a habit suggests you have an alcohol problem!. Even spread over two days, that's more than enough beer on a regular schedule!. Do you look forward to those beers all week!? If you don't get them, does it bother you!?

The addiction can sneak up on you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it really depends WHAT you do!.if it stops you from being yourself!.if you start fights for no reason!.neglet house work or do not go to work because of this!.if you throw up!. don′t eat!.!.!.want to go buy more alcohol and insist on driving,sneaking out of the house for this!.!.!.
when peolpe say stop drinking it is for a reason!.be blunt and ask why they say this!.if it is because there is alcoholism already in the family they want to help!.if it is for controll issues!.!.!.talk about it!.you work, you are responsible!.you act normal!.are corteous,you do house chores!.have your 6 in peace!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Not even close buddy
i drink most nights, but i come home from a long day in the kitchen and want nothing more than a cold beer!.!.!.
you'd be an alcoholic if you wanted a beer before you could stomach breakfast!. been there!. not fun!.

Alcholics are addicted to alcohol, so if you can easily stop having the 6 beers then your ok, but if you really cann ot give them up then you probably are because you can't stop drinking them!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Being an alcoholic isn't determined by how much you drink!. Could you stop drinking those six beers every weekend!? If you couldn't, then by definition you're an alcoholic!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

course not, If you were drinking that ammount every day then it would be worrying, lots of people drink that much beer at the weekends!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

are you kidding !? six beers aren't much !.!.!. when your out with your friends ! but when you sit alone at home and drink it than you should think about drinking less alcohol!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
