Not all alcoholics drink every day, but regular or frequent drinking is one of the key symptoms of alcohol use disorder. The frequency and amount of alcohol consumption can vary among individuals with alcohol use disorder, and some may binge drink or consume large amounts of alcohol periodically. It is important to note that alcohol use disorder is not solely defined by the frequency or amount of alcohol consumed, but also by how the person’s drinking affects their life, relationships, and overall well-being.
