Alcoholism is a disease which is chronic and often progressive and includes problems controlling your drinking, being preoccupied with alcohol, continuing to use alcohol even when it causes problems, having to drink more to get the same effect (physical dependence), or having withdrawal symptoms when you rapidly decrease or stop drinking.
It is also possible to have a problem with alcohol, even when it has not progressed to the point of alcoholism. Problem drinking means drinking too much at times, causing repeated problems in your life, although you’re not completely dependent on alcohol.
