VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- You just started dating someone and you're really hitting it off.  Except something is just not quite right.  Could they have a drinking problem?  

Contrary to popular belief, not all alcoholics exhibit the more obvious signs of having a drinking problem such as frequent blackouts, extreme mood swings and embarrassing behavior.  For many high functioning alcoholics, the signs are much more subtle. 

Lindsay Killam, Clinical Program Director for , a science-based company that combines medication, behavioral therapy and technology to help people decrease or stop consumption of alcohol, offers 5 subtle warning signs that you might be dating someone with a drinking problem—and what to do about it:

According to Lindsay Killam, "Addiction is a learned behavior. Everyone has the ability to unlearn dysfunctional behaviour and reinforce healthier coping. When talking to a loved one it is important to come from a place of empathy. A nonjudgmental approach invites conversation and understanding. Be clear about what you observe as the consequences of their behaviour and at the same time let them know that you believe in their potential. Finally, let them know that they can decide how change looks whether that be controlled drinking or abstinence."
