I believe my husband is an alcoholic. In the past his drinking had interfered with his job, not so much anymore though. He even quit for a year, then said he was going to drink on special occasions, then it turned into only at home. He doesn't drink every day either, he probably drinks 5 out of 7 days. How do you know if someone is an alcoholic?

I would say your husband meets the definition of an alcoholic, especially when it interfered with his work. I think the main criteria is when your drinking negatively affects other aspects of your life. If he usually drinks more than a couple drinks on those 5 out of 7 days, that would negatively affect his health, and that would also indicate an alcohol problem.

There are definitely signs there. I have so many people in my family who are alcoholics. I have always been afraid to start drinking because I've been afraid I would do the same. It's a horrible disease.

I would say he fit the bill when it interfered with his job. And drinking five days a week does sound like a bit much, but it also depends on how much he is drinking. If he comes home from work and has a beer or two and that's it, that's not so bad. If it's more than that, it will start to effect his health and that's a problem.

I think he's an alcoholic,
because 5 out of seven days isn't normal, especially when he's putting down his
work. Talk to him about it and convince him in joining a rehab center as soon
as possible. Best of luck.

Whenever something become your weakness and you can't live without it or you can say always think about that particular thing then it is an addiction. I think your husband is alcoholic. He is affecting his work beacuse of this and health too. You should discuss with him about his addiction.

Hi Rhyannon,

 

I think your husband who is now drinking every 5 days a week should not be called an alcoholic right now, but you have to rethink the matter. Someday, he might turn himself to be an alcoholic guy again because I think he is trying not to make it his regular habit, but things may go beyond his control; especially when something distressful happens. So, please be careful about his habit from now on.

Then
again, the matter is critical and basically does not permit the deferral
created by long holding up periods
