Drink every day? Get drunk once in awhile? You might be an alcoholic. Or not. A new study shows most people who drink to get drunk are not alcoholics. The finding, from a government survey of 138,100 adults, counters the conventional wisdom that every “falling-down drunk” must be addicted to alcohol. Instead, the results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health show that nine out of 10 people who drink too much are not addicts, and can change their behavior with a little prompting.
