Almost Addicted You're done with work for the day. Dinner's finished, too. And the kids' homework has been checked. Do you unwind with a cocktail? Pop open a beer? Is the time now: "wine" o'clock? A lot of people enjoy a regular drink. And even if they're not crashing the car, missing work or messing screwing up a marriage, many drinkers may qualify as "almost" alcoholics, according to Harvard doctors who wrote a book on the phenomenon. Beyond social drinking, Thursday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
