Our expert says:
Not necessarily. But one bottle of wine per day is an excessive intake of alcohol. Although there is some evidence that a SMALL regular intake of wine may be healthy ( that's be one or two glasses at most ) larger amounts are bad for the brain, the liver, and other aspects of good health ; and it is a depressant drug, and may enhance the risk of Depression. Now, if the amount he drinks has remained constant for a long time, if the amount he needs to drink to produce whatever result he is looking for, has not increased, the situation is stable, and less like a typical alcoholic. As for drinking alone, though that is often part of alcoholism, this is partly to hide the amount one is drinking. You appear to know how much he drinks. How would he feel if you asked to join him, to have a glass a night, maybe two in the winter ?
