Growing up I witnessed my parents consume alcohol almost daily. They appeared happy most of the time, well before my dad got seriously alcoholic any way. Because my dad is alcoholic, im skeptical about drinking at all and interested in finding out how you know if you are an alcoholic. For example.. does it take a while to get a clue?

Be careful. With both parents drinking, you might have inherited a problem with alcohol. Signs of alcoholism include increased drinking, drinking alone, hiding your drinking, problems on the job or at school due to drinking and problems with social and family relationships.

Without even talking about the signs of alcoholism, I want to remind you that genetics do play a part in addiction. If your parents were alcoholics, you should not even tempt fate. If, however, you decide to start drinking, make sure to watch how much and how often you consume it and also if you find yourself drinking more as time goes on.
