I hate seeing her cry and I keep messing up so I know the crying is my fault. I don’t know what to do I don’t know how to stop or to fix it. Does this mean i've become an alcoholic?

Alcohol addiction is one of the most serious addictions there are. If you think that you have a drinking problem, then you probably do. You need to talk to your doctor and be completely honest about your drinking habits. They can help you figure out just how bad things actually are.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can give you some good insight into whether or not youre an alcoholic . If every time you stop drinking you experience the shakes, vomiting, confusion, or serious agitation, then youre probably a severe alcoholic. The normal definition of a problem drinkers a man who drinks more than seven drinks per week , or a female who drinks more than five drinks per week. While this can be variable depending on your height and weight, its still a pretty good guideline. Theres nothing wrong with drinking a glass of wine at the end of your evening, but you shouldnt need to drink the entire bottle just to feel normal.

It sounds like there may be some factors affecting your relationship with her other than the alcoholism. At this point, looking in to therapy and treatment may be your best option if you want to stop hurting her.

If she is crying because things you do while under the influence and you can't stop drinking by yourself, this could be alcoholism. Have her help you look in to different treatment options available.

I think that going into alcohol withdrawal has a lot to do with knowing when youre an alcoholic. The CDC says that about six people died from alcohol a day. Im not sure if this includes deaths due to drunk driving or residual deaths from people who use and make bad decisions. You know youre an alcoholic when you continue to drink even when you know its doing bad things to your life. If its causing you to hurt the people around you, harming your health, or your finances, its time to get help.
