Decide what to do Once you have recognized the symptoms that confirm that your date has a drinking problem, there are two things you can do.
If you have just started seeing this person, you can move away.
If you're in a relationship with someone who's always drinking, drunk or drained from drinking the night before, chances are they have a problem with alcohol.
If you are living with such partner, you will be able to identify definite behavioral changes at home and at the workplace.
Choose a time when your partner is sober and talk about how their alcoholism is affecting you and your relationship.
Tell your partner how you feel when he or she loses control over their behavior and how the addiction has consequences for the relationship as a whole.
The former likes to party, even party hard but does not lose control of his/her sense.
However if you have been dating him/her for some time and this problem has emerged during your relationship, you may not want to end it immediately.
If you love this person and want to help him/her as much as your relationship, realize that you are taking on a very big challenge.
Another indicator that someone has a problem with alcohol is if they can't just have a drink or two.
If they have to actually keep drinking until the point of inebriation and beyond.
You may think that there is a difference between living with an alcoholic partner and merely dating one casually.
