Some months I’ll have one or two beers a day most days, other months I’ll have one or two beers the entire month. My father was an alcoholic so I know all about the evils of alcohol addiction first-hand, but as with anything, many go overboard the other way, and make a cross in horror, like someone vulnerable to an approaching Dracula, when another who drinks even casually is near.

Not a drinker? Here’s how to date if you’re sober

I have a really close male friend whom I think is thinking of asking me out. I know some of the sins he struggles with, and I want to help him overcome them. This seems to be the right mindset to have as far as preparing to love someone in marriage. Last year he was getting drunk when he was stressed or upset. Several of us confronted him about it, and he has asked older men from his congregation as well as some of his friends to hold him accountable. I see a lot of potential and encouraging signs in him even if he does have a lot of growing up to do and a lot of sinful habits to overcome. He is taking the problem seriously and has made more mature friends. If he gets back to a point where he will only drink one or two beers, can this be considered acceptable? At the same time, I want to help him.

Is it OK to date a drinker?

Binge drinking is a kind of alcoholism marked by heavy, episodic drinking followed by a period of non-dependence on or relatively low consumption of alcohol. If you believe the person you are dating is a binge drinker, here are a few things to keep in mind. About binge drinking In order to identify your date as a binge drinker, you first need to know what the term means and how to differentiate one from other kinds of drinkers. Researchers often define binge drinking as the consumption of five or more drinks at one sitting for males and three or more drinks at one sitting for females. Binge drinking most often occurs on weekends and holidays when the pressures of work are at the lowest. When many people hear the term “binge” associated with drinking, they think of someone drinking continually for several days without eating and getting very little sleep. It takes only a six-pack or just a bottle of wine to finish at one go in order to qualify for binge drinking. Also binge drinkers can be of various types — your partner may be a college student who goes on a drinking spree with friends or classmates or a middle-class professional who craves for stimulation and wishes to abandon control on weekends. Then there are the community drinkers who are motivated by the need to belong and usually drink in large friendship groups. At the other extreme are people who drink heavily to while away their boredom and loneliness. This may take place at a public place like a bar or at a private party.

What It’s Like to Date and Not Drink

You may know someone or be dating someone who is in the beginning stages of alcoholism. The experts say that alcoholism is a progressive disease. When someone with an alcohol use disorder continues to drink, the symptoms become more apparent and more numerous, until it is finally obvious to almost everyone that they have a drinking problem. But, they did not always display all the obvious symptoms. They were alcoholics long before they lost everything and ended up in the street. They did not wake up one day and suddenly “become” an alcoholic. What that means, however, is it’s not so obvious in the early stages of the disease.
