My s/o drinks around eight beers a night. At first it was fine with me he wasn't out of the way with anything just a few drinks. Last night he discussed something on the phone with me that we had discussed the night before, and I asked him did he not remember talking about that with me, and he went silent then said he remembered. I am thinking he only remembered part of it and not all of it. He said he started drinking some when he hurt his arm at work two years ago because the pain pills made him sick. BUT that is also around the time that his ex wife came back after abadoning thier children and himself and took him to court and took thier childrein back from him. Could he be drinking like he does to numb the pain??? Seems his mom is always on his butt about something and like he is in a partial rut. He normal drinks 8-10 beers a night but sometimes I think he drinks more once in a while, I guess depending on the day.
I love him and try to support him 100%, but not remembering something that we had already talked about because of the alcohol makes me worry. He is so far a good guy other than the beer at night and that is the only time he drinks. When I made a couple of comments that I made last night, which were basically questions such as "goodness how much did you have last night?" He seems to be touchy about it and gets a little attitude. I only want the best for him and I know I can't do it for him.
I am not sure he needs to go as far as going to AA because it is only a nightly thing,he isn't drinking 24/7 but then again I don't know I know nothing about any of this.

IMHO, if he's drinking any amount other than what one would consider *social drinking*, it's too much. No one should NEED alcohol. And honestly, you know him best, if you think it's become a problem then it probably is.

Oh and not remembering, that's basically blacking out. And that is not good.
