If you talk to hollywood celebrities if they go out and do something stupid all of a sudden they're alcoholics and need to go to rehab. Same thing, anyone caught with a DUI is suddenly an alcoholic. It's annoying.
I'd say you're addicted if you start having withdrawals when you stop doing it, like other drugs.
