Um... one's skin condition alone is not an indicator of alcoholism. I would hope that if you were interviewing someone for a job and were concerned about their drinking habits, you would conduct a more conclusive examination than simply assuming they're an alcoholic due to the condition of their skin.
As you can see from this Web MD article, many people with rosacea get accused of being alcoholics when they aren't.https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/news/20040218/link-between-rosacea-alcohol#1
Yes, drinking can make rosacea worse, but so can stress, avocados, and even exercise.
From the article:
"It is important that the public does not wrongly and unfairly confuse the appearance of rosacea with heavy drinking," says Diane Thiboutot, MD, of the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. "At the same time, in managing the disorder, alcohol should be recognized as among the many factors that can trigger or aggravate the condition."
Other triggers include some 20 different foods, including avocado, cheese, and eggplant; drinks such as coffee, tea, and hot cider; skin-care products; and even exercise.
And... unless you're their doctor or a loved one, I don't see how it's any of your business, anyway.
