Concerned about a friends drinking

I have been concerned for a while about my friends drinking. This week each time i have spoken to him he has been totally hammered by 6pm.

I just talked with him this afternoon and am pretty sure he was drunk at 2:30 in the afternoon. I feel really upset about this and don't know how to keep myself emotionally safe while still wanting to be his friend.
