Thank you for your advice. I will read the chapter you suggest. I have, on many occasions, talked with my boyfriend how his drinking affects me. We are in our forty's and he tells me he believes he is old enough to determine if he has a problem or not. He says he believes he does not have a problem or drink too much, which depending how you look at it, may be true. As I stated in my first discussion, it could be as little as two drinks which affects his personality, then there are times he seems perfectly ok. Also, whether he is telling me the truth or trying to cover up how verbally hurtful he can become when he does drink, he states he does not remember doing or saying any of the things I mention to him. Again, I will read what you suggested.View Thread
