No. You're not an alcoholic.
My ex-husband WAS. In the morning, while I was sipping coffee...his shaky hands would be reaching for a beer.
You are trying to escape occasionally from the huge amount of stress in your life. (in order to keep carrying on)
Most people use something to relieve stress. Exercise, shopping, food, medication, alcohol, sex, gambling, video games....etc., etc.
When your 'stress reliever' becomes your lifestyle...then it's a problem. Everyone who partakes in any of the above does not necessarily go
I think the fact that you are questioning it, means that you're not, lol. (They say that if you question your sanity, then you're not insane!)
Just my two cents!
