Re: Whats worse, 2-3 drinks a day, or 20-25 alcoholic drinks in one night once a week
Both options exceed the common medical definition of heavy alcohol use. Consistent/long term heavy use is typically classified as alcohol abuse, which is a form of what is typically referred to as alcoholism.
Alcohol abuse can occur without dependence. Medically speaking, you don't have to be an addict in order to be an alcoholic.
