We've been together for almost 2 years.. I don't think I recall him having a problem when we got together, it's more of a gradual thing that I am more aware of now I'm older plus how severely it is impacting our relationship. We share the same friends, he was a friend before we got into a relationship and because we are young 99.5% of socialising with our friends involves drinking..
I've been insulted, cheated on, spoke down on, hit.. The most recent was being pushed as hard as possible to nearly falling over in front of everyone and him nearly getting beat up because of it last weekend. Him being drunk causes him to have paranoia (mostly about me cheating) and aggressiveness. he is the most lovely person who I adore when sober, as soon as he drinks I don't even know if he's the same person.
He can't have just 1 or 2, even 6-7 he always guarantees to drink double of what me and his friends will drink in a night. I avoid going drinking with him there, or if he is there, avoid going near him because it is guaranteed he will somehow get verbally aggressive.
He will come to watch a movie with me with a 4 pack of beers to drink on his own a lot.
He's on the verge of getting sacked for going home "sick" 'cough cough.. Hungover. Or not even bothering to go to work at all..
He got sacked from his last job earlier this year- same reason.
I've talked about how I think he has a problem and he agrees he will prove it to me and stop (however has serious denial about a problem when intoxicated). Last time he promised was Sunday, after the pushing incident. It is now Thursday, he's passed out downstairs on my sofa after going to the pub with a friend and returning to my house to accuse me of cheating I'm 19 years old, I don't want to stop drinking, I don't have a problem with drinking and neither do his friends.. But he feels he has to because we do.. Or else, what else can he do? I really want to support him through this and I don't want alcohol to be the reason for this relationship to end. It's just going to get worse and I can't just sit back and watch it happen
