My friend, a 25 year old guy (Mike), recently moved in with his girlfriend (Fran). I know her well too - she's a good person and a great friend. Being with her has helped my friend a lot and he's loosened up quite a bit. However, Fran is quite rich and has no problems letting Mike use her money however he sees fit. He's lived relatively modestly up until this point and I fear that this is leading him along a dangerous path. He never drank or did any drugs before (I mean EVER - maybe tasted some beer a few times, but never actually "drank.") Every time I visit them, he's always got a bottle in hand. Every time I talk to him at night, he's always drunk. I talked to Fran about it and she tells me that it's just new to him, the novelty will wear off eventually. This has only been going on for about 2 months but it's really worrying me. Whenever I talk to him about it he's not aggressive or dismissive, in fact, he agrees with me, but he doesn't stop. What can I say to my friend to help him realize how dangerous the path he's going down could become?
