Cindy, yesterday my wife and I had dinner at a restaurant. She had at least 6 glasses of wine during dinner. She drinks this much at one sitting at least 3 times a week. Is this alcoholism?

Cindy, writes:
Jack, your wife’s behavior sounds like binge drinking. Binge drinking means having four or more drinks in one session; it’s drinking to get drunk. Binge drinking becomes alcoholism when the drinking begins to cause problems and the drinking continues despite the problems.
