Kid probably thought the doctor meant drinking in general as in any and all types of liquid. He is 3 for god sakes if your doc really thinks that because of a three year old said so get a new one he's and idiot.

Reminds me of a story I got told by my husbands dad when he was younger his dad got pulled over him in the car the cop asked if he'd been drinking when the reply was no my husband yelled "you don't lie to policemen daddy you were drinking the whole way up the road" thankfully the cop was smart enough to explain to a small child that ginger ale is ok to drink when you drive cause it won't make you drive funny and he got back "what if the bubbles go up your nose? I can't even WALK s

Kids say the craziest things! I wouldn't worry about it too much OP. Hopefully your DR is smart enough to realize your 3 year old doesn't fully understand the meaning of drinking.

Your Child is really adorable! He's just thinking of your well being... And he's completely right; you do drink all the time! No one told him you were talking about alcohol!

And how exactly are we to determine who is an alcoholic or not? What tests are we supposed to run to figure this out? Oh that's right - there isn't one. Unless they come to the office drunk, alcoholics are typically VERY good at hiding it.

And this is why we need psychic doctors who can read minds. Can't expect people to tell the doctor the truth about their lifestyle in favor of their health.... Wouldn't want them to risk a scolding, would we?

Well obviously a good doctor can read minds and carefully stalks all his patients to know their habits! It's not like most addictions are relatively easily hidden until the worst has happened or anything, why would a practicing medical professional ever think such a silly thing as that?

Doc, you sure do know a lot about hiding alcoholism. Do we need to have an intervention? I'll call Dr. Phil.

Oh my god, people. Schizomaniac is joking around with Doc. I'd say there is hope for you yet, but I don't think Doc is able to fix a broken sense of humor.

Well, I learned from House that doctors always send other doctors to break into patients' houses during treatment to see what they may be hiding, so I'm sure they will notice the absence of empty bottles...

I'd be willing to bet that "doctor" received his diploma in a cracker jack box, if he couldn't comprehend that your 3 year old is naive to the differences between drinking and "drinking"

Apparently your three year old has seen you "drink" if they responded. But you may want to find a way to explain that alcohol is not like juice or soda and is bad to drink...

Who are we more likely to believe? An adult who has years of practice at lying, or a three year old kid who doesn't know how to lie yet?

If you refer to my comment 28, I was young once and I thought drinking included soda and water. Strange though that the doctor did not realize this. Anyway, so once when I was a child I thought my mother was a drinking driver! And that's my first time being beaten by a belt! (No, just kidding.)

Indeed they do Doc. Way I see it, if they can't be honest, they deserve what comes of it. Of course, I can't even imagine how nerve racking the risk of an unwarranted malpractice suit must be...

Social drinking is drinking with friends, or in a *social* environment often. In fact, it's considered a proper term by psychiatrists.
