I want to start a debate about the concept of "self-medication."

Since moderate alcohol consumption is socially acceptable and legal, it is not considered to be "self-medication," and my guess is that most psychiatric professionals would not call it that. Is the degree of social acceptability of a substance's use a criterion for determining whether it is "medicine" (self-administered or otherwise)?
