How do you know when you're an alcoholic?

My friends say I should go to an AA meeting. I don't even drink that much! I have like (1) or (2) drinks in one day, maybe every two or three weeks. Would you consider me to be an alcoholic?

Update:

It's a lot of them, I really drink very little.

    That's pretty light compared to most of my friends. If I told the ones who were actual alcoholics, they would probably laugh.

    If you find yourself drinking more than a drink almost every day then you have something to worry about, especially if you're constantly thinking about getting buzzed, tipsy, or drunk. If you can't drink just one drink everytime you're around alcohol, you may have a problem.

    But to me you sound like you have the type of good habits and discipline that most drinkers should have

    When you keep finding yourself telling people you aren't.

    If it is just one friend you may be OK. If it is more you probably have a problem.
