    What are some signs that could classify someone as an alcoholic?

    alcoholism = addiction to alcohol.

    addiction is wherein (my definition) you put off those things which are more fulfilling and should be more important and meaningful and better for you - for the finite pleasure associated with addictive outlets.

    If someone misses work to get drunk, comes home early to get drunk, destroys relationships with family for alcohol, etc.

    then they *could* be an alcoholic.

    a tolerance for alcohol... taking pride for how much alcohol you can injest before getting drunk or not getting drunk at all, would more or less be one of the major signs.

    missing work, school or other responsibilities due to alcohol is another sign.

    unable to remember what you did while under the influence, is probably another one

    there are quite a few signs of it.

    what if you just drink when you're bored, and you dont let it affect work or school or relationships with people?

    thanks

    then you should find something more constructive to do...
