What defines alcoholism?

Other than having a physical craving for alcohol, what else defines alcoholism? Drinking 2 days a week? 4? How many days are you drinking a week before you're declared an alcoholic?

  • It's not how much it's do you feel you NEED it. I rarely drink, I have 3 bottles of booze left from my bday party, and have maybe taken two shots out of them. My dh on the other hand when he gets home from work feels like he needs a beer and then that turns to 20. If he didn't get them for free now we would be divorced. It's has nothing to do with how many I know people who have Kahlua in their coffee every morning a glass of wine for diner and a bourbon every night that doesn't make them an alcoholic.
