What If Your Mate Drinks Too Much?

No matter how many discussions you’ve had, you can’t get him to admit he has a problem, nor can you get him to change.

Sometimes asking a friend to talk with your mate will have more impact than if you speak to him.

Sometimes asking a mate to read a particular article or book on drinking will have the desired effect.

Sometimes dragging your mate to a therapist and discussing his drinking will make the difference.
In addition, don’t drive home with a mate who has had too much to drink.

Make a pact that you will always drive home from a party or social event. This keeps you from guessing how sober your mate is. It also keeps you from arguing at a time when he’s been drinking.

You may not be able to get your mate to change his drinking habits, but you can protect yourself and the other people on the road.
