When Is It Too Much?

At what point does one become an alcaholic? The last 6 months or so I have been drinking heavily most nights to forgot my work stress and emotional fuckery. My friends 'worry' and think I'm going down a bad path. My male friends jokingly call me an 'alco'. Honestly I enjoy drinking and its one of the few times I'm happy and relaxed.

Does this make me an alcaholic yet?
