Is someone who drinks at least a twelve pack of beer a day an alcoholic?
Actually that's on the week nights, the weekends are more because he starts at 11:00 AM. He also seems to get meaner verbally as he drinks.

Yes. But it's not so much the quantity as the fact that it's EVERY day/night.

Let's say he was only drinking 2 beers a day. Every day. Either won't stop or can't stop---that's an alcoholic, too. I knew someone who drank 2 glasses of wine every night. EVERY night. No matter what. If that person was traveling, they would pack bottles of wine in their checked luggage. Even if they were flying to NY or Florida. So afraid they wouldn't be able to get to a store right away and get their wine. That person is an alcoholic.

Yes that is an alcoholic. Unless they are ready to get help and stop drinkning there is not much you can do.

Yes! My father was an alcohoic & he didn't drink that much beer a day. But he still had to go to AA meetings. This person needs to seek help, ASAP!


Army Retired Guy
well suppose it depends on how you define alcoholism. But, your liver will take a tremendous amount of damage and will quit functioning early in life for that person.

definitly. try to see if he can go without it. his reliance is what would define him as an alcoholic.


Silke
Yes, and he won't live too old at that rate.


Little Man
Alcoholism, at least what I've learned, isn't about what or how much someone drinks...it's about the need to drink. An alcoholic feels drawn to it... There are alcoholics that only drink one per day and then there are others that drink more than a fish.

I would suggest getting far away from this person, if they don't listen to your concerns...

If they deny they have a problem, and would have great difficulty not drinking for any extended period of time (2 days, 1 week, 1 month), yes. If he is hurting those around him, yes. If he needs the alcohol to function and needs it to face relationships and needs it, yes.

A 12 pack of beer a day is expensive, and I think is definitively binge drinking (anything over 5 drinks a day is, if I am not mistaken). No adult should be drinking more than 1 drink a day if they want to be healthy.

I would say that you need to find him help as soon as possible. If he is not ready to help, or becomes abusive when you suggest it, then there is a big problem and is very likely an alcoholic. I have included the website for AA below. Visit it, find a meeting, and go together!
