Would you regard someone as an alcoholic if they consumed atleast 2 beers, most, if not every day?

    I'm saddened to hear about the burden you've been forced to carry. If the people your are around are blood relatives, be very careful to never drink a drop yourself. No amount is safe for you, from what I've studied. Be safe--don't drink just in case

    I checked on the Mayo Clinic's website, and "Steady drinking over time." (http://urlredo.com/Wg on 12/22/12) is a risk factor for alcoholism. In my personal experience, I think the most important risk factor is family alcoholism.

    I agree. I checked the Mayo Clinic's website, "Steady drinking over time." (http://urlredo.com/Wg on 12/22/12) is a risk factor for alcoholism, not necessarily a drinking problem or a definite case of alcoholism.
