My fiancee's father is an alcoholic and had been drinking for many many years. Of course with an alcoholic, they are in denial of their problems. I see a big difference from when I first met him 1 1/2 years ago til now. He drinks everyday, drinking a 30 pack plus on the weekends. Lately I have notice that it only takes 4 beers and he is tipping over, gets awnry, and confused at times. He does still work, so the only time he is not with a beer in his hand is from 8pm to 3 the next day. During the week, he drinks like 2 bottles of water a day, the rest is beer. On weekends he drinks ONLY beer. His hands have been cramping bad lately and recently he has been getting sick. Like tonight for instance he threw up twice, was hot, did not feel good. My fiancee and I do think that he has a yellow tint to him. He is stubborn, has a negative attitude and says that he wont make it to his 60th birthday. (Which is in September) Could it just be that he is dehydrated, and nausea from not eating all day then drinking on empty stomach? Or is it really what I think and his liver failing? lilOme
