You're not necessarily an alcoholic because you enjoy drinking during the week. Although drinking might seem more acceptable on the weekend or on "special occasions," many people wind down in the evening with a glass of wine or beer. That fact alone doesn't mean you have a problem with alcohol.
Is Weekday Drinking Interfering With Your Life?
Everyone has different comfort levels when it comes to weekday drinking. Don't let someone else's attitude toward it make you think you're automatically an alcoholic.
Feeling like you no longer have control over your drinking habits could mean that your body is developing a physical dependency on alcohol. The sooner you commit to making a change, the sooner you can regain that feeling of control. Don't hesitate to reach out for advice if weekday drinking starts getting in the way of your career, relationships, or health.
