Drink all the time, what age do you become considered an alcoholic? ?!

Question: Drink all the time, what age do you become considered an alcoholic!? !?
I drink all the time but its normal for my age group!. Still 19 so its no problem now, but when I'm older i know its called alcoholism!. Sooo, what age!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

If your still in college then you are not an alcoholic!. After college and you settle down and still drink too much, then you are an alcoholic!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is not age as much as habit!. The signs of alcoholism include:
1!. Drinking alone
2!. Making excuses, finding excuses to drink
3!. Daily or frequent drinking needed to function
4!. Inability to reduce or stop alcohol intake
5!. Violent episodes associated with drinking
6!. Drinking secretly
7!. Becoming angry when confronted about drinking
8!. Poor eating habits
9!. Failure to care for physical appearance
10!. Trembling in the morningWww@FoodAQ@Com

It's not the age!.!.!.!.it is the actions!. When you can't function without a drink, when your routine includes a drink, when your planning revolves around planning for the drink, when your memory is eroded from a drink!.!.!.!.you are already too late!.

I spent many a year wondering the same thing, while blacking out, laughing, having accidents, coming home robbed or broke, !.!.!.!.spending night after night drinking in some sort of fashion!.

Quit doing the bars and now have 65 pounds shed, clearer memory!.!.!.and more money for greasy fast food!.
