If a person drinks a glass of wine everyday, does it make that person an Alcoholic?
If it's just one glass, probably not. I think it would only be considered an addiction if the person could not function without drinking, if it altered their normal lifestyle or behavior, or if they could not go a day without feeling like they had to drink. If they spent the whole day just waiting until they could have the wine, missing other activities to have the glass of wine, or getting drunk from the one glass, then I guess it could be a problem. I think in order for something to become an addiction, it has to be not only an enjoyable part of their day, but a necessary one. The person feels they can not function if they don't have whatever it is they are addicted to. Ice cream is my favorite food, and I eat it almost every day, but I don't feel I have to eat it every day. I don't give up other things I love, like spending time with family and friends, to have my ice cream. I think if the person has enough self control to stop after one glass every time, then it is most likely not an addiction.
No. One 8 oz. glass is very good for you. That or one bottle of beer or one oz. of whiskey will lower your cholesterol. My Endocrinologist taught me that and it works. Red Wine is good for you anyway, at least one glass per day. Don't over do it of course.
Absolutley not. you should check out the dieting artical at http://www.rps.psu.edu/0205/dieting.html. its a penn state site on dieting Italian Style.. If you want me to save you the read.. i will just give you a quote. "What Branca calls "the Italian paradox" is this: Despite the jump in both fat and fatness, there's been no rise in heart disease." That's a culture that love red wine and they are healthier than we are many times over.. it not only lowers cholesterol it is crazy high in antioxidents it reduces arterial plaque And it has anti cancer properties.. Proven fact.. do yourself a favor.. keep drinking that glass a day.
No, one glass a day is recommended by most doctors. I look forward to my glass of White Merlot every evening.
I don't think so. Drinking a glass of alcohol a day is not what alcoholics do, they go for a bottle a day. If you're not getting drunk then there's no problem, and it may even be healthy to drink good wine.
If you find that you are craving your wine and need it to get through the day, then it's time to backoff a bit and probably stop drinking completely.
If you control your consumption it's ok in my opinion.
No. I've been told by many that it does but I think it's perfectly fine.

What are your thoughts on parents who drink alcohol?Here in the USA I notice a lot of parents who seem fearful of having a drink for fear of judgement from other parents. What is your take on it? Do you think having children should mean no more drinking?

Do you believe that once addicted, always addicted?Whether alcohol, drugs, gambling or any addiction, when you stop the act of your addiction, does that mean you are cured or is it arrested as long as replaced by something else? Please don't confuse obsession with addiction.
