The easiest way to know if someone is an alcoholic, is to look at the definition of addiction:

To continue a practice despite consequences!.

If the person you know fits this bill, then they may be an alcoholic!. If you are worried about this person, visit with their family and friends and see if they are worried about him/her as well!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

A person doesnt have be drunk all the time to be an alcoholic!. My dad drank every day but never got drunk, yet he was considered an alcoholic and he died of sirrohsis of the liver!. So if they cant go longer than a day or 2 without something then they might be considered an alcoholic!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
