I have read the difference between an alchie and a hard drinker or problem drinker and yet I still struggle with this. Don't know why it really matters to me but I spoke with a substance abuse councelor who told me that he felt I was a problem drinker and not an alcoholic and I've been drinking on and off since then. This was decided in a 30 minute conversation with him though. I know about the 20 questions and what AA says about alcoholism but most of that can apply to problem drinkers too. Otherwise it wouldn't be a problem. So what is the difference really?
