[quote]I'm questioning this because not even 24 hours passed, before he is in a new relationship.
OP, I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but this statement doesn't pass the smell test. NOBODY finds a new long-term "partner" within 24 hours of dumping another. Assuming they aren't exes who got back together or weren't fucking around behind your back, they are together for one reason and one reason only: alcohol. The new bf isn't just an enabler, in other words; he's undoubtedly a hard-core alkie himself.
[quote]If he drinks a 2LTR bottle of wine in one sitting, is that a problem?
[quote]He wasn't a mean drunk, or got rock bottom drunk. he was a happy drunk.
Real drunks (as in long-term) are never truly happy; the booze merely lets them forget their problems for a while. I speak from experience: I fell into an alcoholic spiral a few years back when I was in the throes of a deep depression. I was always the life of the party, and no one would've known what was going on inside me, but I only drank to forget. Although I was never a mean or rock-bottom drunk, I finally quit after realizing what I was doing to my family and friends, my body and my career.
[quote]I keep thinking about how happy this new coupling will be, the house they will buy, the anniversaries they will be celebrating, the vacations they will take.
...and this is why I suspect you might be trolling. Codependent drunks buying houses together, celebrating anniversaries and traveling the world? Seriously??? Where, praytell, will they be getting the cash to fund these wonderful adventures? Please be realistic.
[quote]The bottom line is that I'm all alone, dumped because I don't drink.
Oh, gee, you're alone. Boo-hoo. You need to start by asking yourself -- AND FIGURING OUT WHY -- this prospect stokes so much fear in you. Also, it could be much worse, e.g. you got dumped because your bf found someone younger and prettier than you and decided to kick you out with no notice.
