Consider Al-Anon: Unfortunately if he does not want to stop you may be powerless to change his behavior, but check out Al-Anon, an organization for family members of alcoholics that provides support and may give you ideas on how to help him.

Started exercising with DASH diet but still smoking and drinking alcohol and lots of coffee (tried quitting but can't) BP still slightly high. Meds?
Not certain what you: Are asking. If you want to know if medications are indicated then the answer is no provided you can make appropriate life style choices.

Then don't: As we continue to figure out what the true health benefits vs risks alcohol has on the human body, I am not currently recommending to my patients who do not drink, that they start drinking. However, if you already drink 1-2 drinks a day, there seems to be good evidence that it is beneficial. Thus, I do not make them stop. But don't start, especially at 33.

Assuming you did have liver abnormalities and you are still drinking, then you clearly need some help. Talk to doctor about treatment. ...Read more

Have a better?: Why do you continue to drink alcohol when it makes you suddenly puke? Continuing to drink when it regularly causes a particular problem IS a sign of a drinking problem, and I strongly suggest you discuss it with your health care provider.

If you have problems not drinking, get help! ...Read more

Runs against them: Using both alcohol and antidepressants together runs the risk of intoxication and sedation -- more than expected with either alone. Also in the long run, alcohol is a depressant, and disrupts sleep cycle. Your antidepressant will be fighting this, in a sense. Alcohol may give the temporary illusion of improved mood, but repeated binges can also dysregulate -- rather than even out -- your mood. ...Read more
