What type of alcohol do you drink? Exactly how much?
Drinking a bottle of wine every night does make you an alcoholic. Some sources say drinking daily makes you an alcoholic.
As I noted above, 14 drinks or less is still considered moderate drinking. 7 or less in a week is “social” Not getting drunk off this much alcohol also is common in alcoholics. You have developed a tolerance due to heavy drinking.
Pretty sure I noted that above. 14 drinks a week.
Plus the development of tolerance supports a diagnosis of alcoholism.
That is a bit of an oversimplified way to look at it, But yes.
