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.

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 dont think theres a single definition for alcoholism. I mean, theres gotta be a clinical definition, but it really depends on how badly your alcohol use is impacting your life. If your drinking is ruining your family and causing you to lose a lot of money, then you probably have a serious issue.
