Good for you. You handled it in a very mature way, and I think you’re doing the right thing.

cmbr:  

Finishing a drink is not a problem.  

Being unable to stop yourself from finishing a drink is a problem.

Never ever leaving a drink unfinished could be a bad sign in a habitually heavy drinker, especially if we are talking about quite a few heavy drinking sessions over several months.  Having to drink a lot before attending an event could be a bad sign.  Prioritising drink over the woman you purport to love is a very bad sign.

I think on this one the OP has very good instincts.

But all this is academic because the person has admited they have a problem.

theblondebee:  I think that, as another poster has said, you’ve behaved in a very mature manner.  I think that you have had the good sense to be concerned about the relationship on many levels.

This is like the 10th old thread you’ve resurrected in the past hour! Can we leave the old threads alone and stop bringing them back from the dead since they are no longer relevant?

I had experience with a person like this in the past.. years later he got in a drunk driving accident. I have really harsh advice to run for the hills before it gets worse.. but thats my experience :\

As for this, I noticed it was an old post after I posted. But guys, keep in mind, this could help someone else in a similar situation.

ktsteimel :  Wow, way to welcome new bees. There could be other new people here that are able to garner something from past posts and get a sense of community. If you can’t simply scroll past it it’s not of interest to you then I’m sorry but I’m going through a hard time and searching for a community of other people that have gone through something similar is why this board is helpful to many. I think we can all agree we share and write about things here that we are too embarassed to discuss with people in our day to day lives.
