I'm doing a pros and cons list to determine the downsides to being a functional (as in only drinking at night, not while working, but dependent every night on alcohol) alcoholic. So what are the downsides in being an alcoholic if it does not interfere with daily activities?

The upsides i see are insomnia relief and temporary stress relief.
Yep, I said that once too. :)
Good points, Billybuc. RE: insomnia and stress: alcohol disrupts the most important stages of the sleep cycle. I wouldn't associate stress relief with this stage of alcoholism. Short-lived relief is followed by more stress and no solution.
