Alcoholism is a disease and the need to drink takes over the mind. Someone who suffers from alcoholism may have a lot of problems that result from their drinking. When this doesn’t seem to matter to them, they have a problem. They can also suffer a lot of regret over their actions but still go on drinking.

It doesn’t need to be a medical professional to determine that someone is an alcoholic. When alcohol becomes the most important thing in someone’s’ life and they feel like they need to drink, that’s the definition of an alcoholic.
