If an alcoholic is someone who drinks too much?!

Question: If an alcoholic is someone who drinks too much?
why is someone who works too much called a workaholic? Shouldn't it be a workic? Shouldn't a workaholic be someone who goes to work drunk?


No. Aholic means obsessive with something or other. They used the shortened version of alcohol, alco. I think. These are my observations, sorry ^.^

not surre... why do you want to know this though?
