Same here. While doing civilian service (for the non-germans: basically a year of social work to be excluded from the draft) my roommate and me drank 187 cans (0.5 liter) of beer during our first month, which averages about three cans per evening and person. Keeping in mind that we went out on weekends and even sometimes during the week, thus emptied the 187 cans during approx. four evenings of the week, and always had some shots with them, that's quite an intake.You can not lead his life for him - if he upsets you have a quiet word that perhaps he should not be quite so disgusting. Still I drank wayyy tooo much at college myself, but beer not spirits.
Starting university, it did not get better. It's not undergrad if you're sober in time for your 8am class.
Working on my Ph.D now i don't even find the time to drink every weekend... mind you, not "getting drunk", but just having a nice beer. I know if i drink one beer, i'll have another. And if i had two beer in the evening, it affects my intellectual abilities next morning, so i simply don't drink at all if there's work to do next day.
