is there a fine line between drinking to relax and alcohlism?!
it really depends on how often you are drinking to relax, like if you need a drink everyday after you get off work to relax, you need one to go to bed at night, etc.
A very thick line.
Depends on how often they are "drinking to relax"
A glass of wine a day is not a problem, but drinking to escape the reality of life is. There are excellent medications on the market right now to help with anxiety. See your doctor.
If you notice that you NEED to drink to have fun, drink by yourself, and find yourself thinking about alcohol and the frequency of this occurs often--then you're an alcoholic.
That is how one becomes an alcohlic!
