You'd never know these people were drunk because they appear normal and function well enough in their jobs.
    Ok.

    I see your definition.

    I guess mine differs, because I would call somebody who doesn't necessarily go to work after drinking, but who just comes home and gets drunk every night, and then wakes up the next day to go to work, a functioning alcoholic as well.

    Pretty decent estimate.

    This.

    I can't tell you how many people I know making six figure incomes who smoke weed somewhat regularly.

    Not every day necessarily, but anywhere from about once a month to a number of times a week.

    True.

    But it's getting out there.
