Was Winston Churchill an alcoholic?

Update:

Obviously he was a heavy drinker, and he came from a different time, when perhaps the definition of an alcoholic might be different from our own one. Churchill had a whiskey with his breakfast and drank heavily at mealtimes. As a side point, he was also tranqued-up with drugs to maintain his wartime work.

Update 2:

I don't think any less of Churchill for his vices; it's interesting to know about it. It's a little like those studies of James Bond's drinking which would have proved James Bond was an alcoholic who would have been 'hospitalized'.
