  • I don't think so. As long as you are capable of taking care of your kids it really doesn't matter. And as long as there is someone there who is sober and can drive if an emergency came about I don't see what it matters at all.

  • I don't think so. If you are a fall out drunk in front of yours kids a lot than yes. I know someone like that. Should of reported her.

  • the only way that would be classified as alcoholism is if it was MUST HAVE type thing. Like you would have withdrawals if you didn't drink that 1 glass of whatever. I know many people who drink a couple beers each night after work to relax.

  • if you cannot ever go without it, yes it is an addiction. if it's just because you enjoy it, no. personally I rarely drink, but I find no problem with wine/beer/margarita (yummmm) with dinner as long as you aren't drunk more often than you are sober.

  • No. Alcoholism is when you can't function without a drink. You drink daily. You wake up and want a drink.
