Hi! I believe I can be of help with this issue.
I can imagine how frustrating and confusing this situation must be for you. You are clearly an intelligent man and a loving man. And it appears the two sides of you are in conflict here.
The intelligent man appears to recognize what's going on: your girlfriend is an alcoholic. She may be drinking to self medicate to deal with accumulated stress. There may be other psychological reasons accounting for the alcohol abuse. But the truth is that she's an alcoholic and you appear to recognize this clearly.
Your loving part, though, is trying to figure out how to make it seem like lemonade.
Whatever reasons can be found to make it make sense to drink (day off, etc.), does that make it sensible to drink this quantity? I think we both agree that this is not what life is about and we can also agree that it does not bode well for a person to be a loving partner in a positive, healthy, coherent way. I know that's tough for your loving part, but I also sense that your intelligent part is strong and recognizes this.
Should you continue with this relationship appears to be your real question. I am concerned for you. Because alcoholism wears down the intelligent side of good people who are in relationship with it. This is a truth that you can't avoid. It is not healthy for you. Should you go to Al Anon to learn how to stop enabling and how to try to get her to AA?
I'm going to tell you my first impression, but it's only that. I think you need to move on. As I said, I'm concerned for your health and wellbeing. But if you are going to continue, then here's the meeting finder for Al Anon. It's the part of AA for family members:
Okay, I wish you the very best!
