    I am 21 years old with 5 year older boyfriend who has drinking problems. I really l and deeply care for him and want to help but don’t know how. I do drink too with him and that the second problem, before I liked having a drink or two sometimes, but now it is getting more and more frequent. He said he’ll try his best to quit, but I want to help somehow (going to therapy isn’t an option because it’s not really accesible in area that we live in).

    Thank you for helping

    Wish you all the best

    Dear Naaz:

    For the purpose of suggesting anything useful for you to say/ do so to help your boyfriend, can you tell me a bit about him: what is his daily routine like, does he live alone, what are his relationships with his family members.. does he have friends and do they drink together, how often/ how much time do you spend with him?

    Generally, I am quoting from the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) website, aa. org: “Alcoholic Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere… Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem”-

    – on the left side of the home page, it reads: “A.A near you” and under that: “select a country” and an arrow to the right. Maybe the country you live in is on that list. Otherwise, you can find information and resources there.
