is it strange/does it make you think of alcholism? because i was having a conversation with a co-worker earlier today and mentioned that i have 2-3 beers a night after dinner and he got all shocked and asked me if i have a drinking problem. i am clearly not an alcoholic as it does not affect my daily life but i am just curious if 2-3 drinks a day makes you think of alcoholism as well?

I think it is all personal if you ask me. I might have two lynchburg lemonades or gin and tonics or glasses of wine.

not to me, unless it starts affecting you/changing you.

I think it depends on the person a bit if that's alcoholism or not. I'd lean towards not, especially if you never have more than that. I'd lean the other way if you frequently get drunk on top of that.

IMO one a day is more healthy than more. It's a lot of calories if nothing else.

Your coworker sounds like a dingleberry honestly. Generally speaking in the psychological world, before an addiction can even be identified as one, there has to be a pronounced and usually detrimental change in the way you live your life or treat those around you, either directly or indirectly as a result of the thing you are addicted.

What you do might be described as whats called a "soft addiction." These are basically compulsions that either have begnin (like you) or relatively harmless side effects and do not present an immediate and/or grave danger to one's health. Some soft addictions include overeating(although that's starting to become more debated among the psychological community), using the internet too much, shopping, or reading excessively. Usually these are things that most people have to do daily to live or make their lives simpler, with the exception they are taken to the next level and done excessively.
