I've very concerned about my brother who has a serious alcohol problem and need to know the answers to a couple of questions to see whether he needs help.

He drinks basically everyday during the week he drinks about 2 double brandy's and coke and weekends he can drink a bottle every night by the problem lately is that when he drinks he gets so out of it he says stupid things, swears and carries on like a real idiot im actually ashamed to be in his presence. What i would like to know is that why does he get like this and why so quickly? He only gets like this after having about 6 brandy's in an hour which i know is excessive but surely this cannot be healthy for him

Jonke, he gets like that because he is drunk. 6 brandies in an hour will make most people act stupid. If this is not what you want to know, please formulate your question differently to make it a little more clearly. Good luck.
