Dr. Stuart Wasser answered:

do you think having to have a bottle of champaine a night would be considered an alcoholic?

Depends

Alcohol_dependence
That level of use defines problem drinking with alcoholism being defined by other criteria. However, more than 50% of people drinking this much do meet criteria for alcohol dependence.

Is drinking 1-2 bottles of 42 proof vodka a day considered being an alcoholic?

Size ?

Airline mini bottle size or larger? What you describe sounds quite worrisome and warrants medical evaluation.

What can I do if my mom drinks a bottle of wine a night, is she an alcoholic?

Alcoholism

Women
I am sorry but I can't diagnose anyone over the internet. Unless it is a minibottle of wine, this is excessive use. It would be in her best interest to see her physician for a comprehensive evaluation to include her alcohol use. Alcoholics Anonymous may be beneficial for her.

I drink 2-3 bottles of (500 ml) Strong Beer three times a week. Is This OK? Am I alcoholic?

Probably not

If the drinking is causing any problems for you, e.g., trouble with your friends or family, and you drink anyhow, you would be an alcoholic. If the drinking does cause any problems for you, than you are not an alcoholic.

Are you allowed to be an airline pilot if you're an alcoholic?

No

Drug_addiction
Alcoholism is substance dependence and substance abuse. Both disqualify a person for a pilot's license. Special certification may be given in the case of a reformed alcoholic but I am not certain. Note: no alcohol may be consumed within 8 hours of flying, "bottle to throttle."

Dr. Jeff Blixt answered:

Can you be fired for being an alcoholic?

Good question

Alcoholism
Can you be fired for having a disease. they answer would be No, you can't, that discrimination. Can you be fired for your behavior, absolutely. alcoholism is a disease, yet many alcoholics have done horrific things, they have killed people while driving drunk, there are consequences for this. Having alcoholism explains a lot of bad behavior, however it does not excuse it.
