Why do you get drunk every day? There must be a reason, and that will probably tell us if you are an alcoholic.

How long do you think you can go without getting drunk?

How many times a day do you get drunk?

Do you drink when you're not supposed to?

If you get drunk everyday, that must mean quite a lot of drinks, so yes, you are an alcoholic. Doesn't mean you can't stop drinking.

The fact that you mixed up every day, and every weekend leads me to believe that you should lay off the happy juice for a while.

"Every day" and "every weekend" are incredibly hard to mix up.

No, you're not an alcoholic, but it isn't wise to get drunk at all. . .ever.

You're not an alcoholic, I do the EXACT same thing as you and I love the feeling.

Can you wake up in the morning without needing a drink?

If you can't go without a drink, than you're an alcoholic...

If he really needed it, he'd drink everyday. Everyone can think "oh noes what would I do if I dont get drunk this week end?" without being an alcoholic. It may be a step towards becoming an alcoholic.

Well its just so hard to answer the question. I am not really trying to defend myself.. I am not sure myself. I believe I could never do it again and be fine.. but I am not sure. I am sure that I dont want to stop though. I see it as eating your favorite meal regularly..or something. You dig?

If your favorite meal is harmful, and you know it is harmful, but you keep eating it, you may or may not have an addiction to it.

See a therapist.

I won't recommend a therapist, but I still say your on the road to being an alcoholic.

Drinking every weekend is one thing, drinking to get drunk is alcohol abuse

Ok, well just go without it for a month or something. If you can do that no problem, then you're fine.

Well I drink to get drunk because I enjoy being fully drunk. I dont pass out or anything.. I know my limit. I honestly mostly drink out of enjoyment.

Did none of you take reading comprehension as a kid? It saids he gets drunk every weekEND not day, therefore he only does it friday/saturday/sunday, which means he's probablly out of school and with kids or adults his own age partying. So no, your not, unless you do it by yourself in the basement or something.

As long as it doesn't give you any problem, don't see anybody. Getting drunk twice a week isn't that bad. Just don't get too drunk or you may regret it.

Well see its not even twice a week.. usually just saturday. And I definitley do look forward to the weekend because of this.

Thats absolutely not true. Not even close. That statement actually has no basis in reality, whatsoever.

Sorry for the over enthusiastic response, you just don't run across such blatantly wrong statements that often.

depends how much you consume. If you're drinking alot you're binge drinking, basically means to my understanding(err took bio 2 years ago), that you don't drink every day, but you drink large amounts at one time, then go days, even weeks without drinking, then drink large amounts again. if your binge drinking then your destroying your liver.

Uh, that's what I do and I don't see how I am destroying my liver. Getting drunk isn't that bad for your health, you just don't feel so well when you wake up the next day. If you do get drunk everyday, your liver will deteriorate but what's the point of drinking if you're not even getting drunk?

Holy hell. I'm addicted to McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, my school's cafeteria food, Mexican food, Chinese food, American food, Doritos, nachos, cookies, Cheetos, Pringles, pop corn, butter, margarine, meat that has been raised on factory farms, Tylenol, most prescription drugs, tap water, macaroni and cheese, soda, coffee, energy drinks, other junk foods, alcohol, weed, cigarettes, video games, watching tv, the computer, talking on my phone, riding my bike, driving my car, sitting for too long, taking a piss and forgetting to wash my hands, going to the restroom in public bathrooms, being around sick people, going to the hospital, and pretty much any other activity that cause slight to severe adverse health effects! I know the risks but keep on doing them!

Thanks for the warning! I'm calling my therapist right this second.
