Contrary to popular belief, alcoholism is the act of drinking by one's self, typically while in a state of malaise.
Doug: Where's Zach?

Chris: Haha I didn't invite that crazy fuck to my party.

Doug: Terrific. You know that he spends his evenings drinking alone in his basement? He does that on nights when he has no plans.

Chris: Drinking alone!? Now THAT is true alcoholism.

Very chic amongst (pseudo-)intellectuals, mostly of the hipster brand.
Sascha spends his Friday nights drunk, reading Derrida.

Alcoholism must be in this definition.

A progressive, fatal disease. A disease which can be arrested, but not cured with the help of AA.
Alcoholism is the only disease which you can be yelled at for having. You won't yell at someone for having polio.

Drinking is merely a symptom of the disease. It is a disease of perception. We are spiritually sick. Most people are spiritually sick, this is how our spiritual sickness manifests itself.

Basically if you call someone on the phone and in an emotional wreck and express your love for them. Bloody alcoholics.
Alcoholism is only a problem if you say it's a problem.

The unfortunate side effect of being around and consuming too much beer.
I used to have a secretary who wouldn't give me blowjobs, and a wife who cheated on me. Then I got alcoholism and now I can jerk off whenever I want!
