Does getting trashed once a week mean that one is an alcoholic?!

Question: Does getting trashed once a week mean that one is an alcoholic!?
If you enjoy drinking to get drunk on the weekends!.!.does it necessarily mean you're an alcoholic!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

if you NEED to get drunk, then you may have an issue!. If you want to drink on the weekends, it might not be an issue!. everyone likes to have fun!.

is it affecting your life!? have other people commented!? take hints from the people close to you!. and how old are you!?!? if you're too young it could be a big issue, but if you're old enough to drink, then its not much of an issue!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I recently learned that being an alcoholic doesn't just depend on how much and how often you drink!. It also depends on how you control yourself when you are drunk!. So, we wouldn't be able to tell you if you are one!. Think about how you act when you get drunk!. If you loose control, you could be classified as one!.

But once a week doesn't sound bad to me!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

What if you had to do something important that weekend and you could not go out and drink!? Would it be a very big deal to you!? Is your drinking prohibiting you from functioning in life either at home or at work!? If you answer yes to those questions then I think that you may be an alcoholic, or you are at least on the road to becoming one!.

10-12 shots is really not good!. How long have you been doing this!? You may be damaging your liver!. At least go to the doctor and make sure you do not already have liver damage!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

It's just my opinion but!.!.!.
If you can have a drink or two to loosen up, relax, no problem!. What concerns me is that you sound as if you're going way past the point of no longer enjoying your self, to the point of getting "sleepy"!. I'm guessing that you are young, single and have no children!. Hope this is just a phase you'll get over!. I also hope you're not getting into a vehicle in this condition!. Your question brought out the mom in me :)
Sorry for the lecture!. I don't suppose that is what you wanted to hear!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

In my opinion i do not think so!. I do the same thing!. I like to get drunk and have a good time but i can't do it during the week because of work and other responsibilities!. As long as your not dependent on the alcohol or think you NEED it then i dont think that that makes you an alcoholic Www@FoodAQ@Com

Not really!.!.!. it depends if it's interfering with your life, and how trashed you get!. If you're throwing up every weekend, that's bad!. If you just party and drink with your friends every weekend, that's not a problem!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

IMO it can certainly lead to it!. You're setting yourself up,girl!. There's a psycological reason why you need to use (abuse) alcohol to the point where you get "trashed!." Seek out some help!Www@FoodAQ@Com

EVERY weekend!?

Yes, usually that means you are an alcoholic!. Try skipping it for 3 weeks, if it's hard, you have a problem!.!.!.

Not but it means you are setting a lot of risks for yourself and that you don't see drinking as a social thing but as a method of abuse!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it depends on how u think of alcohol!. if u think of it as a way of solving ur problems than yes thats what i used to do and now im in counseling!. if its just a way of having fun!.!.!. then thats a little debatableWww@FoodAQ@Com

No, well yes and no!. Not to some, but yea to others!. No, b/c your not drinking every day, but yes because your drinking on a regular basis, :]Www@FoodAQ@Com

Nah!. That's doesn't make you an alcoholic!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No but very soon on the way!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
