Re: Drinking in your family

Alcohol tolerance can vary a lot with individuals and it doesn't always depend on body size (I know someone literally 2/3 my size who can drink me under the table) but that is a LOT of alcohol for any size person. And te fact that he won't discuss it with you and gets angry is also cause for concern. I'm not labeling him as alcoholic but it sounds to me like there's both a communication and a drinking problem. I hope he will realize you're trying to help, not criticize. Maybe your local AA could be of some help in that regard? You don't have to get him to go or even tell him you called there, just call and get some ideas perhaps, or email them.
