Our expert says:
Well, let's see. A social drinker is a normal person who has no sort of problem with alcohol, who occasionally drinks alcohol in social situations. It is also a term very popular with alcoholics ro describe their alcoholism while pretending it is insignificant. Alcoholism or problem drinking is someone who drinks alcohol and continues to drink it even though it clearly causes problems for themselves or for others or both.
It is not necessary for them to get drunk ( alcoholics, until their liver packs in, may show less signs of how muich they have drunk than those of us who drink less, and less often. A problem drinker not only drinks with friends, bu finds it hard to imagine meeting with friends, without drinking. They may drink eery day, or only at intervals, like weekends, and agaon, would find it dificult to get through a weekend without drinking.
