How much should one drink in a weak before it becomes a addiction? Like daily drinking?

If one is daily drinking is that a addiction? Some say drinking lowers your memory and it takes longer to learn things and understand things.

  • The essential sign of alcoholism is when someone continues to drink after it causes him or her physical, mental, social, occupational, or legal problems. If drinking causes someone to miss work, neglect personal obligations, drive drunk or get in trouble with the law, then this person has a serious problem with alcohol.__________________Every human being is the author of his own health or diseaseAlcoholism Facts / Alcoholism Definition

  • tolerable maximum weekly consumption of alcohol for men is 21 units (168g), and for women 14 units (112g). One unit of alcohol is defined as a half-pint of beer, a measure of spirits or a glass of wine. But how is anyone supposed to know how much these volumes are if they are not in a bar? These are often referred to as ´safe drinking levels´, but of course no level of alcohol consumption is totally risk-free. The levels are officially described as the amounts below which it is unlikely that someone will develop significant illness or an early death. Pretty vague I´m sure you´ll agree. But it just illustrates that there is no real way to tell exactly how much you can safely drink. The more you drink, the worse the effects, that´s all you need to know.JWP---------Addiction Recovery Alabama
