Yes that is a good description but you can still be an alcoholic if you drink only in the evening everyday or even 4 days a week. There are some alcoholics that have set times they drink and some dont. I guess you can tell I have been to AA!lol A alcoholic is someone who is dependent on alcohol to escape reality or life its self. If you know somebody try to help them because it gets to be a sad sight my step mom tried so many times to get help but failed every time. I hated her when she was drunk but loved her when she was sober than felt so sorry for her. She drank so much one night she ended up in another city and got hit on a main Hwy and died. Alcohol is a drug and can be fatal to some people.

When someone starts drinking and can't stop. Doesn't have to be everyday but every time they pick up a drink they drink to excess!
All of the answers are good and describe different kinds of alcoholics. Someone can be a functioning alcoholic where it doesn't necessarily interrupt their life.

BOTH OF YOU ARE WRONG THE REASON WHY I SAY THIS IS MY FATHER WAS ACHOLIC AND HE WORKED A STEADY, PAYED ATTENTION TO HIS FAMLY, AND DIDN'T LET BEER GET IN HIS WAY OF HIS SOCIAL LIFE. I AM NOT PROUD OF HIS ACHOLISM BUT I AM PROUD TO SAY HE WAS SOBER FOR TWO YEARS PRIOR TO THE MOTORCYLE ACCIDENT THAT KILLED HIM. AND NO HE WASN'T DRUNK, HE WAS SOBER HE QUIT. ALSO MY FATHER-IN-LAW IS A ACHOLIC BUT ALWAYS WORKED 60+ HOURS A WEEK AND STILL HAD A FAMILY LIFE. SO ANYWAYS.. ACHOLICS DO STILL WORK, HAVE FAMILIES TO SUPPORT. THANK YOU♥
