Our expert says:
He and you should contact the Responsible Gambling program ( details given at all casinos ) and he should see a good local shrink, as apparently he applies his tendency to become "addicted" or at least to overdo things, both to alcohol and potentially other substances, and to gambling and perhaps other behaviours, too. CBT counselling could help gain control of these behaviours. <br>And he is not entitled to damage your life by these foolish behaviours and expect you not to talk about it with anybody --- if he doesn't want to be talked about in this way, he should stop the bad behaviours. Sounds like he has to some extent shown an ability to control his drinking, but still having to avoid gatherings presumably because of the potential temptation, which isn't full control of the sort that is needed. <br>
