    Hi Everyone,

    I would like some input and advice about a kind of delicate issue I have with a friend. My friend drinks daily, in the morning, afternoon, evening, at home in front of his 6-year old daughter and wife, and just about everywhere else. He drinks before his private lessons (he’s a teacher). When I am with he and hus daughter when he goes into the local convenience store to buy a couple of cans of beer he tells his daughter he is “buying some pop.” I am not sure if a girl this age knows the difference between alcoholic drinks and soda?

    Usually he is a pretty mellow guy, even when he’s had a lot to drink, though he can be a bit moody. He has admitted to me that he is depressive and that his liver is probably damaged from all the drinking he has done-he’s 50 years old. We live in Japan and he says the only thing that has kept him here is his family. I am a recovering alcoholic. Have told him about my efforts to keep sober. I am not sure if I should tell him how concerned I am about his health…since I have had difficulty keep on the wagon for a long period. I know what it is like to drink in the morning since I used to do that. Any advice would be appreciated
