Does this mean I'm an alcoholic?
I don't have any money so I go to the grocery store for my parents to pick up stuff for them and then sneak a few beers in with the purchase... then I hide it in my car until they go to sleep and then drink it.. I know it's wrong but I don't have any money to buy it myself and I can't go without it..

"Can't go without it" literally, or really, really want to drink? Not the same. If you can't get alcohol in any form, what happens? Do you suffer any physical symptoms? Are you okay emotionally?
Typically, someone who hides their drinking and feels they can't manage life without drinking qualifies as an alcoholic.

Are you actually dependent on it or do you simply want it? There’s a difference.
