It's an acquired taste but a nice IPA has a very enjoyable taste.
Here's when you worry, when it starts effecting his: -studies -legal status (arrest caused by booze') -Drivers license (self explanatory) -his employment or his ability to do his job. -his ability to interact with friends, family, SO (you).
Get him off Scotch, shits nasty and overpriced. It sounds like you don't like him drinking at all.
I think he might be slowly becoming a chronic drinker and alcoholic.
You did say daily basis? He's unwilling to ever skip a single day without a beer or saké?
Drinking on the job too? and a $75 for scotch? Was that a single bottle or multiple bottles btw?
If his pattern changes, and he isn't always having more alcohol volume increased any further and frequently than where he currently is at now, or if he decreases it then he may be ok. If it creases significantly and you see him start to get drunk more frequently then you should be worried. He's probably going through something in his mind right now but is in denial of it and not want to let you know the whole truth. It could be he is unhappy with how his parents were alcoholics, or stress from his job that causes him to want to drink on a daily basis in the first place.
He is addicted and dependent on alcohol. It takes time and guts to fix this problem. But he is too dependent because his body is used to it and it would take a long for him unpleasant process to get to the state prior to alcoholic dependency.
I hate beer. But if its ruining your wallet then he needs to cut back. And usually if your parents are alcoholics then the kid will become one. Maybe when your boyfriend gets older or he is turning into one slowly. (It's sake, not saki.)
u just need to find something u like. girls tend to like fruity drinks. have u tried a margarita?
I was like him. We even drank at work BUT it was part of the job going with the guys or sitting alone. I would also do the Saki thing too. That's part of a 20 somethings life. I just decided enough was enough. What would concern me is his parents are alcoholics. Will he one day decide to tone it down, get a DUI, or just keep at it? There's nothing much you can say or do.
