If you repeatedly drink more than you intend or want to, if you get into trouble, or if you have memory lapses when you drink, you may be an alcoholic. It's a matter of whether your drinking is stopping you from leading the sort of life you want to lead. If you want to control your drinking but can't, then alcoholism is a definite possibility.
