Am I at risk of becoming an alcoholic or developing an addiction if I enjoy a small glass of tequila or whiskey every night?

Am I at risk of becoming an alcoholic or developing an addiction if I enjoy a small glass of tequila or whiskey every night? I don't think it's serious problem now but I'm concerned for my health further down the road, especially since my uncle suffers from alcohol abuse.

    I started with a beer at dinner. Somewhere down the line one turned into two turned into three and so on. Before I knew it I couldnt have just one. Then I started doing dumb shit and ended up doing a ton of cringe shit that haunts me

      This, and I still do it for about a month once a year or so. I'll think I've got it under control and buy some nice sippin whiskey, one drink turns to two, then three, now I'm drunk 4 days in a row, dump out whatevers in my fridge still, rinse and repeat next year

    Yes absolutely. Its not good and you should stop doing that right away. A glass of whiskey once a week on the weekend is okay. Daily is not. That is addiction.

    You have to ask yourself why you're drinking and see if it's a reason that has the propensity to develop into alcoholism

    Pretty sure tons of people in Europe enjoy a glass of wine or two every day and don't have any issues
    Just make sure you don't make the mistake of increasing how much you drink, because if you do that before you know it you'll be downing a bottle instead

    regular drinking probably means you have some unresolved stress or trauma in your life. try increasing the amount of sugar you eat in a day, and the frequency with which you eat and see if you still have a desire to drink. try it before it becomes a real problem.

    that's what helped me. and the sugar did not increase my weight, i actually lost weight because i wasn't drinking anymore.

      This is actually not bad advice
      I used to be a severe alcoholic but I noticed that if I had a large meal it lessened my desire to drink somewhat

    It is never just one drink anon. Me and my buddy when we started drinking said to ourselves that we're going to be drinking semi annually and it turned out to be a weekly thing of us getting shitfaced, and I still drank alone on the "off days".

    Take a week off of drinking. If you get restless and crave alcohol at night, then you're on the road to alcoholism.

    don't. seriously.
    i tried this exact same habit in january, only that i drank vodka instead, and just a shot glass after work or before dinner on weekends.
    at some point during march it wasn't just one shot but 3 or 4, and by june anything between 7 and half a 1lt bottle. my wake up call was when i woke up one monday still absolutely wasted and went to work and literally couldn't perform the most basic of shits.
    i'm aware that i have a problem with alcohol, but i seriously thought i was in control until i wasn't. the line between enjoying a drink and the need of getting drunk becomes very hard to notice once you make a habit out of drinking because in your mind 'you know what you're doing, and won't happen to me'.
    nowadays i replaced my alcohol addiction with dream enhancing supplements and i keep a diary right next to bed to write down interesting dreams, which has prooven far more entertaining and healthy.

        yes, and so is daily drinking.
        it's not like its my only hobby too, but i completely understand what you're saying. i'm in a rough time in my life, and alcohol would only make things way worse, hence sleep, and specifically vivid dreaming, has become a fun way of mild escapism.
        either way it keeps alcohol away, as i don't want to spoil my dream time because less sleep quality.

    If you are at risk for alcoholism, you should either not drink at all or severely restrict your drinking. I have relatives who are so bad that if they have one drink, you will see them in a few days or even a couple weeks when they come back from their bender.
    I don't totally deny myself, but I restrict my drinking to Saturdays. I'll have my first two or three at a restaurant or bar then head home or to a friend's place where I can crash because I'll usually be drinking enough to pass out. So far this has worked for me and the minute my drinking extends into Sunday after sunrise, I'm quitting completely.

    I’m new to drinking, I’ve only been drunk 4 times, but god damn it’s so enjoyable. My brother used to be an alcoholic so I worry a bit for myself.
    It’s nice though, I’m usually quiet and reserved but it makes me effortlessly outgoing and the stress relief is incredible. It carries over into the next few days even.
    I am terrified I will become an alcoholic.

        bro who cares. Whenever I'm coked up, I end up with the hottest girls.
        I don't believe anything is real. When I take those coke, the hot girls just appear in my life and it's easy mode. When I get drunk, I get decent looking women who I fuck whenever we drink but we never really form a relationship. When I get stoned, I get a hot stoner gf who we end up closely attached to.
        Huh, when I'm sober, I don't think I've ever actually been in love. I can still meet girls and fuck them, but usually they seem so vapid. And I'm too focused on my career and fit goals that I really don't want to be in a committed relationship. Fuck I need God back in my life bros, I keep shutting him out.
        I'm gonna go do chin-ups

          You might be onto something with your lifting/career goals and your new persona whenever you're under the influence. In my armchair psychologist opinion it sounds to me like the person you are when you're intoxicated is who you really want to be, it just takes something to numb your conscious to let you live impulsively/how you really are. If I had to suggest anything, try living more on impulse See that cute girl you wanna talk to in the Target? Fuck it. Just go ask. You get the idea. Obviously don't use those impulsive decisions to do drugs, but just try it sober.

          It's caused by shit in your life that you're not happy about. Case in point: I fucking hate the jobsite I'm on and am going to ask the foreman to be transferred. If I'm denied then I'm going to quit. No backup job or anything. I'd rather be a NEET for several months than work 1 more day with this shit.

          is 100% correct that substance abuse is basically a cope for whatever we are feeling negatively at the moment.

    Guys I'm a little worse of than OP, and should I be worried? I can't get out of bed before having like 0,1L of hard liquor. During my day at work I usually drink at least 0,4L (vodka mainly). Then after work like 0,5-0,7L to fall asleep. Can this develop into alcoholism?

    Anon, if you're having mental dilemmas concerning your control over alcohol, then you're betting off saying no always.
    If you want to do yourself a favor, never drink two days in a row.
    But, you can also continue spending the rest of your life battling for control over something you're in denial about. You won't be alone
