What defines alcoholism?

An alcoholic is a person who has a mental or physical desire to consume alcohol, even though it is having a negative impact in their life. The difference between an alcoholic and a casual drinker is that a casual drinker does not experience many adverse effects of alcohol use, aside from the occasional hangover. Whereas an alcoholic will prioritize alcohol over other, more important areas of their life, leading to a lower quality of life.
