I'm starting to worry about a couple of my friends and their drinking habits but neither of them seem to think there's a problem. In their opinion it's just a few beers but a few beers is becoming an every day habit with at least one or two nights per week turning into a drunken can't remember half of it evening. For one of them his life now seems to evolve around the nightly trip to the local bar while the other tends to stop in for a beer on his way home but goes on a booze mission on his days off every week. I should point out both of them have full time jobs and neither are aggressive drunks so it's not like they are taking sick days from work or causing many problems for others. It's more a case of me starting to worry about their health and getting slightly tired of either having to look after them or getting called to get them home when they are too drunk to even stand up or end up making an idiot of themselves. I've known these guys for years and we're good friends but they don't seem to think that drinking a few beers every day or getting hammered on the booze once or twice a week is a problem. I'm not some anti alcohol crusader! I enjoy a few drinks and as they point out anytime I refuse to go for beers I have taken a few illegal substances along the way as well as do some of my other friends. In their eyes our very occasional drug use over the years is far worse than them having a few beers. I've never said they are alcoholics or even said anything that even hinted at that to them but I get regular grief if I try to suggest giving the booze a miss and going to the movies or something else that doesn't involve alcohol. Sorry this post is so long! I came across this forum today and thought I would get this off my chest and see what others opinions were on the situation. Am I overreacting or do you think I'm right to be concerned for them?
