Can you have a drinking problem without being an alcoholic?
As the title says - I’m someone who will binge drink every single friday like clockwork. Doesn’t matter if I’m alone or with friends, though if I’m with friends I do end up drinking more because my friends are cool people who will order shots for everyone and the like.
I’m not an alcoholic, while I’d definitely go out drinking on a wednesday if someone invited me i’m not the type of person who will drink everyday with no ability to control it - but i am definitely someone who wouldn’t be able to go a week without having at least one night where i get decently drunk. Obviously I’m aware it’s not healthy but is this something that could evolve into an addiction in the future? Or is this normal?
