Difference between Alcoholic and High Functioning Alcoholicc?

Alcoholism

Alcoholics_anonymous
Nothing. They both have the disease of Addiction. Their disease will eventually lead to their death if they do not get the help that is widely available for Alcoholics. I would recommend reading the first five chapters of the book: "Alcoholics Anonymous" to learn how an Alcoholic can be alleviated from their obsession to drink.

Liver
Liver cirrhosis is the final result of all forms of liver injury which are commonly alcohol, hepatitis C, B, certain drugs etc. Non-alcoholic liver disease is another form of liver injury which is a result of excessive fat deposition in liver cells and can result in liver cirrhosis in later stages. In earlier stages it will be causing liver inflammation also known as Steatohepatitis.

Will grandpa with alcoholic dementia eventually forget to drink, and solve his own drinking problem?

Unlikely

Dementia
Alcoholism is such a strong addiction that it sometimes overrides even the strongest of the biological instincts, i.e. eating and sex. It is not likely that grandpa will simply forget that he likes to drink.

Will i become an alcoholic if I drink every week? I feel like there's no way out, how do i fix this problem?

Weekly pattern

Alcoholism
Binge drinking on a weekly basis can develop into alcoholism. Especially if the person shows the inability to stop, blacks out, etc. Try this. Do not make plans for the weekend. Don't go with anyone or do anything socially. Remove all the liquor from your house (put it in the garage or storage if that helps). Then go about your business for the weekend. See how you manage your time.

What sort of problem is alcoholic ketoacidosis?

Alcohol ketoacidosis

Sugar
This illness represents a very severe form of alcoholis when the drinking has been carried on to excess for such a long period of time that the body is nutritionally depleted--both in calories and fluid. This results in an inability to maintain normal metabolism and your body, lacking adequate sugar, starts breaking down fat and turns them into ketoacids, which are toxic and can lead to shock.
