My daughters boyfriend has a few beers almost every night/day. I don't think he gets drunk every night, but most Fri and Sat nights he has had way too many. He is 21 so being legal isn't the issue. My family (and my daughter up to this point?) do not drink at all so I am not sure I am the best judge when it comes to this. I am worried he has a problem, but maybe most people that like beer and alcohol drink every day. So my question is does anyone think there is cause for concern about the bf's drinking?Answer Question

Usually it becomes a problem when it affects him or those around him. If he drinks to the point of impairment then it is alcohol abuse. If he is drinking to relax and can stop when he has had enough he has control over it. If not then there is a problem.

I think he is young and just became legal drinking age and it is normal. I would only worry if he was driving after drinking or argumentative, or if he is drinking and not keeping up with responsibilities (school, work).
