A new type of alcoholic based off of the behavior of Kerry Conway. A social alcoholic is a very spontaneous person and often does stupid and immature things when drunk to get attention from fellow drinking buddies and others in the vicinity. This may only take place in bars. Social alcoholics often take many pictures of themselves and their friends while at the bar. They are also known to sleep until the PM hours of the day in which upon waking up from their slumber they immediately start planning their next trip out to the clubs for another round.
