Alcoholism is a double-edged sword - it is not just a physical addiction, it is also a psychological addiction - an obsession. Most alcoholics, at some point I am sure, have tried to control their drinking - abstaining for weeks or months; not drinking during the week; etc. To me, that is the difference between someone who is not a problem drinker and one who is - someone who doesn't have a problem does not have to think about controlling their drinking and isn't obsessing about when they are going to be able to drink next. An alcoholic, like any other addict, thinks about that next one - when, where, why. It has been said that for an alcoholic one drink is too many, and twenty is never enough. Once that first drink goes down, the alcoholic can't get enough. That is so true.
