  5. Can you be an alcoholic without drinking everyday?
Asked: 2017-10-29 09:39:42
I think that I may have a drinking problem. It is not an everyday occurrence and it happens mostly on the weekends or whenever I have any significant period of time off of work. The problem is that I cannot seem to control my alcohol consumption once I start to drink. Even if I plan to only have one or two drinks at the beginning of the night, I always end up in a drunken blackout with no recollection of the night before upon waking up the next day. Would this still classify me as an alcoholic even if it is not an everyday occurrence?

From the brief description of your predicament that you gave here, I would say that it's a possibility that you are an alcoholic. If you feel that you have a drinking problem then you should seek help.

Being an alcoholic does not mean that you have to drink every day. Being an alcoholic simply means that you cannot control your drinking and that when alcohol is involved it leaves your life in an unmanageable state. If you think you fit that description then you probably are an alcoholic.
