He still has pretty bad breathing problems when he's sober, but when he drinks beer, it's worse. He drinks sociably, maybe once a week. He says when he wakes up in the morning his tongue is totally dry. He's a welder, so maybe that contributes to his breathing problem. Don't know. He did mention that last night he woke up with the rapid heartbeat (No beer) and started taking a deep breath over and over and he said it helped slow down his heartbeat. When he goes back to sleep it starts all over again.
