I'm worried about a family friend and his drinking...I need to know how serious this is

He can't drink beer or he pukes blood so he drinks hard lemonade
He tries to take tums or other stuff but his heartburn is always there
His face can turn beet red in no time and he slurs when his face turns red
( just to clarify he is white but does turn "sun burned" red)
He pops pain killers like candy

I just have this feeling he won't make it to 40

  • He needs help, but I am not sure how you can help if the person doesn't want help.

  • I would talk to the rest of the family and see what their take is on it. If they believe the same way, then I'd get ready for an intervention. Either google it, or I have a book here that helps with that. Just shoot me an e-mail.

  • sounds like hes already killed his body and the only hope he has is to maybe stop right this second

  • It sounds like he has ulcers or something else wrong with his stomach. Do you think it is caused by the drinking? or just that the drinking aggravates it? It would make sense for him to want all the pain killers, because I am sure it hurts, BUT that is probably making the problem worse! I would tell him that he needs to have a scope done to see what is going on with his stomach.
