I'm new to this board and I guess I'm looking to "validate" my concerns. First, a little about me. My name is Heidi I'm 28 and have been with my boyfriend who is 22 for 2.5 years. When we first got together he was just under 21 and he would have a drink here and there. Then after he turned 21 his frequency of drinking picked up and he'd have a beer here and a beer there. For the last 6 or so months he's been having 2-3 drinks a night whether that is beer, Sparks, or mixed drinks.
Fast forward to this week....Monday night after dinner he ran to the bank then when he returned I noticed he grabbed a bottle of Maker's Mark from the liquor cabinet. At this time I didn't think anything of it, I actually thought he might have a soda or something in his room to mix with it. Then last night he ran some errands and picked up a different hard liquor before dinner(he was specifically looking for something that was 80+ proof). We sit down for dinner and I noticed he grabbed a shot glass and was drinking this Yukon Jack without mixing it. I thought this was kinda odd but just brushed it off again. While we were watching TV he kept saying he was buzzed and acting obnoxious. After we finished watching The Biggest Loser he went to his computer room with the bottle and shot glass (which it's normal for him to go in there every night).
Later on in the evening I had gone into "his room" to ask him a question and noticed he had the bottle of Makers Mark and a bottle of Tequila under his desk. This is where I started to get concerned. I never saw him get the Tequila from the liquor cabinet so I'm not sure when he was drinking that. I dismissed it and went to bed. Then this morning I was getting a shirt from the bedroom and he asked me to bring him his phone. Which is very odd since he usually doesn't even get up until after I leave. Well, it turned out that he called into work today. I'm guessing it was because he is too hung over. I personally saw him take about 4-5 shots of the Yukon Jack.
Is this something I should be concerned about? If so what can I do to help this situation?
