Much different than an Alcoholic. Alcoholists do not have a dependency on alcohol. They merely enjoy drinking large amounts of alcohol to reach that "happy place", which usually means blacking out and trying to figure out what the hell happened last night.
Dude I'm not alcoholic. I'm an alcoholist.

All alcoholists have a a flask full of Jägermeister and red bull to have an instant Jäger bomb.

An expert at alcohol. Like a specialist~ a professional. Someone who is a specialist at alcohol. Unlike the term "alcoholic", which has a negative connotation, an "alcoholist" is someone who is a specialist at alcohol. They are unlikely to be a drunk, but more akin to a connoisseur of alcohol. This is a compliment, and a term of respect and camaraderie.

As opposed to an alcoholic who drinks to satisfy an addiction, an Alcoholist is like an optimist and views the cup as half full (of beer). They will take any event and use it as an excuse to drink like passing an exam, failing an exam, or the half birthday of their dead cat.
No dad, I'm an alcoholist!

A person that likes drinking alcohol, but won’t depend on it like an alcoholic 24/7. They just wanna be sober or let loose a little.
Friend 1: I feel like you’ll be an alcoholic since you rely on it. Friend 2: No, I’ll be an Alcoholist. I like it, but I only need it when I wanna stop being depressed.
