the first sign of alcoholism....is if you wonder if you are one.
for an alcoholic, it is not how much you drink or how often you drink...it's what happens to you when you drink.
can you stop after one? there is a saying "the alcoholic takes a drink, and then the drink takes a drink". you lose control. you can't pace yourself. nothing becomes as important as obtaining that next drink...

I can't tell you whether you're an alcholic or not. Can you stop? Can you stop for 90 days to see what it does for your life? If you are unable to stop for a period of time, then you have an addiction. Give it a rest, and see what it does for your life. I spent a few years at the 3-4 drink mark, before moving on to 5,6,7,8 and more. You do not want to go there!
