My friend henry always falls asleep whenever we drink. It used to take a lot for him to fall asleep from drinking but lately its happening after 2-3 beers. What is the cause of this? Why is it getting progressively worse?
I appreciate how delicate these questions can be. But, it sounds like your friend is in trouble. He could be close to liver failure. He could be drinking more than you know and getting to black out 'quicker' than normal.
