Any of us who have had an alcoholic in the family, will be understandably sensitive about heavy drinking in anyone we know. Alcoholism has deeper and more complex roots, and isn't simply caused by some episodes of drinking more than usual. I wonder what your boyfriend said to you when you talked to him about your concerns. Continue to discuss this together, explaining why you are very sensitive about this, and also that you don't want to inhibit him from any normal behaviour. What you describe him as doing som far is well within the range of ordinary young men..
