    yeah... I don't think that getting wasted once a month makes one an alcoholic really

    I think that motivation for drinking should have some weight as well in the argument- are you drinking to cover something else up or are you just drinking for the fun of it?

    awesomeness!

    I'll admit that I used to have a drinking problem, though I never fit the definition of being an alcoholic... falling into the "some drink to forget" part of the song Hotel California and such. I didn't NEED to drink, but it was a releif to occasionally just wipe my memory clean for a bit... something like a temporary Eternal Sunshine or something. I always had the self control that if I decided to stop drinking I could though... that's a dividing line between the two in the end. An alcoholic has no control when it comes to stopping and a problem drinker does

    Bullshit; by that standard, you mght as well just label anyone who likes to be drunk occasionally as an alcoholic. An alcoholic is someone who is addicted to alcohol, period.

    Another way to look at it is that it is a loop, a never ending loop. But when we look at it closely,it is two loops, and when we leave the first loop, we are directed to the second loop. and when we leave the second loop, we are directed to the first loop. And round and round we go.

    If we are in one loop, the way out is to intoduce a small extraneous element and the loop will dissipate. But if we are in two dependent loops, this doesn't work and we are addicted.
