    Bob had been drinking since his

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    Bob had been drinking since his teens, but when he could not begin a day without a drink, he had to admit he had become an alcoholic. This realisation gave him angst, which he washed down with another drink.

    They're okay, but you might want to replace, "but when he could not...", with, "but when he could no longer...".
