How do you know if someone is an alcoholic?

I think my friend is an alcoholic, but I don't want to accuse him if it's not true.

Heavy drinking is defined as 36+ drinks/week for men, 22+/week for women. Things that might indicate your friend is alcoholic: He gets angry or very self-defensive when you ask about his drinking; he is on edge when he doesn't have a drink but normally would have one; he's missing work frequently; or, he doesn't engage in his hobbies and interests.

Everyone's alcohol tolerance is at different levels, so it's hard to give a concrete answer, but good warning signs are intense intoxication (doesn't know how to drink without becoming drunk), drinking alone, and not being able to go a day without alcohol.
