A man who enjoys a beer or whisky after his 7 am shift has caused a rift with his partner and her family. Despite not considering himself an alcoholic and only drinking once or twice a week, his partner has staged an intervention with family and friends. The man argues that it's no different from his partner having a drink after work on a Friday, but his partner believes it's a problem due to the time. The situation has escalated to name-calling and accusations, leaving both parties at odds. What do you think? Is the man in the wrong for not stopping his morning drinks, or is his partner overreacting? Read the full story and share your thoughts.

🍺🕖 When is it too early to start drinking?

A man who likes to have a beer or whisky after his overnight shift faces backlash from his partner and family members. They staged an "intervention," calling him an alcoholic and demanding he stops drinking at 7 am. The man argues it's no different from his partner having a drink after work on a Friday. He believes he doesn't have a drinking problem and only drinks 1-2 times a week with a maximum of 5 drinks per week. He's never been an alcoholic, had a substance problem, and never missed work or was driven under the influence. Is he in the wrong for not stopping drinking at 7 am, or is his partner overreacting? Read on for the comments and reactions.
