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

    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'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 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.
