Patient discussion about employment

Q. My son who is now employed and due to his work stress has started drinking every day. My son who is normally a lovely boy started drinking with friends. We never objected even when he started drinking heavily as well he was well controlled. He is now employed and due to his work stress has started drinking every day. I have been observing him every day on his increasing intake. Due to this he has lost his loving nature and because of this work related stress cannot now be handled by him. I am also worried that if he may be diagnosed as an alcoholic and I need some advice.

A. You have figured out that your son is probably an alcoholic. He is self medicating his stress. His story is very familiar. You may be seeing only the beginning stages of it. Some never give up drinking and they eventually die from it. Sooner or later your son's drinking will cause some kind of trouble to himself or others. Its already affecting you as he has sought comfort from a bottle instead of family support and you feel left out.

As a responsible adult and loving parent, you have to start saying NO and take a firm stance against his heavy drinking. You can encourage him to get help. You could suggest that he go to an AA meeting instead of a bar. But you should not tolerate heavy drinking or drunkenness around your home. This is what is called "tough love". You can pray for him that he will turn his life around.

Most alcoholics will keep right on drinking. They often have to hit rock bottom in their life before they realize how powerless they are over alcohol. AA c
