    I think you are one the minute you start vehemently and violently disagreeing with anyone who voices concern over how much you drink.

    Of course, the other sign is that you swill your mouth out with mouthwash in the morning after brushing your teeth - and like the taste of it so much that you down the whole bottle...

    Well over the course of a day I'll probably drink about half a bottle of whiskey, then if I go out I'll probably drink the equivalent of the other half. And sometimes I do get wasted on my own. /feels like a loser

    But like I said it's rare that I'm 'drunk'... probably about once a week.

    Well perhaps that would be the best way to find out if you are...

    Is it sad that I would actually purchase this duvet set if it existed?

    I suggest you try it and find out.

    All indications point to yes, you're an alchy at the moment.

    A bottle of whisky a day is quite pricey no?

    Unless you drink shite that is.

    Even sadder that you would have to purchase it in Mainland China.

    If you wanted the Master Chief duvet set, well that would be something else.

    I hate EG drinking threads. No of you alco's ever show up to meets. Therfor I suspect you all drink half a shandy and piss yourselves.

    You are an alchololic when the spew makes the keys hard to depress, till then you are fine.

    Psiloc, why don't you go see your GP if you are worried?

    Or try to cut down on your own, and if you can't then go see your GP. Like others said: If you can stop drinking for a prolonged period without too much trouble, then I'd say you are fine. If you can't, then you are dependent on it.

    If you can't function normally without alcohol.

    You have a drinking problem when drinking gives you problems on a regular basis

    I just don't know what to say in this thread. I must be a massive alcoholic. However I couldn't care less, it doesn't affect my home life or job. I just like to drink, every day.

    Unwind and all that...oh, and get completely out of it at the weekend of course, that's a given. What the hell else is there to do?

    @ OP - Just swap whisky for some sort of ale/beer/wine, then you won't die so soon and you can still have all the fun!

    I drink JD, or Bells if they're sold out. I haven't actually thought about the cost that much, may be a bit frightened to face how much I spend.

    I often get the feeling that if I won the Lottery I'd probably be a complete alchy, and probably quite enjoy it as well.

    Moderation for me is generally a side effect of not having enough money.

    See your problem is that you’re so fucking in love with the romantic notion of being an alcoholic. That you are some lone wolf McQuade, Tragic poet, Wideboy drinker.

    Then you post about it on a fucking gaming Internet site?

    Your other threads are occasionally quite clever but the drinking ones make you sound about 12.

    It is BORING, no one comes on here and talks about how many carrots they can or do eat.

    I got tired of hearing about how much people can and do drink when I turned 15.

    Try Samaritans if you want to do a cry for help.
