Our expert says:
It sounds as if your boyfriend has more than just a drinking problem. He is showing all the signs of alcoholism.
You don't have to drink every day in order to be an alcoholic. His binge drinking is regular and destructive enough for him to fall into this category.
You will most probably find that should you confront him about his alcoholism he will deny it. In fact, he might get angry.
You should gently talk to him about his drinking. Ask him to stop completely. If he can't, then it will just be further proof that he has more than just a drinking problem.
Suggest that he attends an AA meeting. If that doesn't work, he should consider treatment. If he still won't co-operate you should think about an intervention of some kind.
I know that this might sound alarming to you, but you are dealing with a serious situation. We can assist you with advice and with how to go about an intervention.
