Alcohol is alcohol: As far as calories go, blood levels, getting drunk, potential damage to organs, risk for breast cancer, a drink is a drink (see my other answer for that). Speed of intake affects how much alcohol is absorbed, and blood levels, whether you nurse a beer, glass of wine, or mixed drink. Trace vits, minerals, toxins, antiox minimal effects on health. All may increase good cholesterol somewhat.

Take care of YOU: This may sound counterintuitive, but the best thing is to take care of your own behavior first. Some people equate "helping" with trying to control the alcoholic's behavior, or his/her access to alcohol. This can lead to over-focus on what the alcoholic is doing. Attending al-anon, the group for families and friends of alcoholics, can help you balance this. http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/.

Party game: Hey, introverts like parties too! they just don't participate in the same way as extraverts do. Perhaps what you're concerned about is anxiety. If so, here's a quick tip: you can't feel anxious unless you're thinking about yourself. So, think of your focus or attention as a hot potato. As long as you keep it on someone else you won't get burned.
