Do I have Alcoholism? Alcoholism is broadly defined. Some of the terms are a little hard to understand, so a little common sense helps to break down those hard to understand terms. Likewise if you spend a lot of you time drinking or it is hard for you to cut back alcoholism probably exists. Also if you involve yourself with risky behavior, poor decisions like drinking and driving will occur.
When alcohol controls your life nothing else matters as much as it should. Family relationships dwindle, financial problems happen, hygiene dwindles, etc. Alcohol goes from being fun to being something you need and are dependent on. Once you become dependent on alcohol there is no doubt that a problem exists. Please do not let alcohol control your life and if your dependent on alcohol to function each day alcoholism does exist.
