    looking for a word to call someone who drinks alcohol too much.

    Hi teachers,
    Normally those who smoke a lot are called chain smokers. But what would you call those who drink alcohol too much?

    NOT A TEACHER

    And if you're looking for an informal expression, you could use "drunk(ard)".
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.
