Concerned About Someone Else’s Drinking?

You may have noticed that the person is:

  • More concerned with drinking than dealing with important matters
  • Angry if confronted about their drinking
  • Secretive and evasive
  • Increasingly intoxicated or appearing to be under the influence
  • Tired, irritable and looking less well than is normal
  • Less interested in every day things
  • Unable to say no to opportunities to drink
  • An apparent strong desire for alcohol
  • Drinking more and more to get the same effect
  • Appearing to be anxious, depressed or showing symptoms of unusual behaviour

As a family member, close friend or relative you may feel:

  • Frustrated and hurt
  • Unsure how to help
  • Concerned for the person’s safety and well being
  • Worried about what will happen in the future
  • Angry if your help and advice is not accepted
  • Frightened by the person’s behaviour
  • Feel that the person may be beyond help
  • Worried about the effects on the rest of the family/workplace
  • Worried about financial consequences
