My friend seems to not go anyway anymore that he can't have a beer in his hand. Should I get him help?

I just feel like he may be becoming an alcoholic so I just want to knot if I should help.
Olivia K You could try expressing your concerns to him (preferably at a time when he is not drinking) and let him know you are there for him, he may just open up to you. If he denies anything is wrong, just continue to look out for any warning signs that may indicate there is a real problem (negative consequences, health deteriorating, driving under the influence). Then you may want to consider involving another loved one to intervene, which is most effectively done with professional guidance.
