much too much?!....neighbor is an alcoholic.....
Posted by: NewtonMP2100

.....for years now but this week is out of control.....normally, 3-4 six-packs of beer every 2-3 days....sometimes there will be 1-2 weeks of nothing then a 'binge'......


This week so far (and the week isn't over):

3 six-pack of canned beer
3 six-pack of bottled beer
6 bottles of sauvingnon blanc
3 bottles of vodka
1 cabernet


*(there is only 1 person in the apt, so there is no chance this is more than one person consuming this and the individual works from home, most of the time)

Is this from seeing the empties? Maybe there's an accumulation from the "1-2 weeks of nothing" and the "binge" is getting around to cleaning up and putting out the recycling.

....the building has refuse room on each floor where everyone on each the floor leaves recyclables/garbage and this is usually picked up every 1-2 days (so you do see accumulation but it is emptied at least every other day)....


....the above list is left out every other day....so one day there will be 2 six packs and 2 wine bottles.....2 days later 2 six packs and 1 vodka......etc. He seems to place the empties out as he finishes them. (the list isn't dropped off all at once)....

Never has guests?

My upstairs neighbors have parties every week. (And the floors/ceilings amplify every noise.) They sit on the empties until recycling day when they take out a giant pile of cardboard and stinky bags of unwashed bottles.

Two people drinking that much would be dead.

....no guests (at least no parties).....one of my walls is adjacent to his so I can hear sounds (had to endure hearing him having sex on occasions)....

....one can also hear when his front door is opened so if people where coming in/out, one can hear it.......

I'm very happy you are his neighbor and not mine.

Why do you care what your neighbor does? dunno smiley

....well, I'm concerned [ I'm not posting to judge him nor am I spying on him. when I take out my garbage, I see all his empties there ], I don't know him well enough to do an 'intervention'......if I just 'let it go' as I have been doing, then one day, there will be an ambulance coming out of his apt.....


.....this isn't just drinking a little too much.....look at the list above, that is enough alcohol for a dozen fraternities......


....if this was you, would you prefer that no one took an interest and just let you die....???


.....do you have no empathy for your fellow man.....??

How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb?

Only 1, but the bulb must want to change.

Coors Light? If so, it's pretty much canned semi-flavored water.

He might very well become dangerous to Newt. Reason enough.

Of course I do, Newton! Silly me - I'll be right over and we can go talk to him together! Maybe get in a verse or two of "Kumbaya" while we're at it!</s>

If you were serious about wanting to help him, you'd be over talking to him right now, not gossiping about his personal business here.

I see it a bit differently. It may be that Newt is looking for support or advice on what he can do, if anything.

From my perspective, the options range from nothing, to slipping some literature under the door, to calling the local AA chapter and seeing if they have any recommendations.

So call it gossiping comes off to me as a bit harsh....

....hey, 'man child' how is this in any way gossiping....gossiping involves joy in others misery.....have I been mocking him or finding any joy is this.....???

.....do you just make stuff up as you go along without listening to what is coming out of your mouth.....??

.....the issue is some people react violently to 'confrontation'....if I go over there, he may beat me up or just say 'mind your own business'......


....you really are not a very nice person are you......I bet you are really fun at parties.....

I don't see anything in his (her?) post that even hints at that. Yours is a very generous interpretation.

.....people with darkness in their heart....see darkness all around them......misery love company as they say......


.....so the whole point was to post this to make fun of my alcoholic neighbor.....???


....I guess we all see the real you now....for those we didn't see it before....

That is not the definition of gossip - this is the definition of gossip: [www.dictionary.com]
  • noun: a person who habitually reveals personal or sensational facts about others
  • verb: to relate gossip
Calling me baseless names doesn't do anything to strengthen your position, either.

It's unfortunate you are unable to comprehend how inappropriate it is to discuss this individual's personal business here, especially behavior of this nature. Perhaps you should spend time contemplating that instead of calling me names.



It is what it is.

....right so I mentioned this person's name and where he lives and what he does for a living.....you could pick this person out from a crowd and send him a letter right now.....


....you are one of those people who have 'alternate facts'....and you make stuff up as you go along....in your bizarro world.....that how you see things and no one will change that for sure......


....here is another example of your revisionist mind set.....look above....what name did I exactly call you.....I don't seem to remember nor do I see any wording in which I called you a 'name'.....I said you are not nice person....that isn't calling someone a name.....
