Does social drinking make me a “habitual drunkard” and ineligible for U.S. citizenship?
Unless you're an alcoholic or getting in trouble due to heavy drinking, you should be able to show the good moral character required to naturalize.
I’m filling out Form N-400, the Application for Naturalization. I have been a lawful permanent resident for over five years, am fluent in English, and haven’t had any run-ins with the police, so I figure it is time I became a citizen. I notice that one of the questions asked whether I am a “habitual drunkard,” however. What does this mean? I am certainly not an alcoholic, but I often enjoy a wine or beer with dinner, and like to meet friends at the local bar on Friday nights. Are the immigration people going to ask me about or investigate this?
