Thing is though that he'd most likely been building up to a massive bender.
I can only guess but possibly he'd been having a drink here and a drink there and the alcohol was in his system.

Alcoholics can all take a drink and remain functioning but the next day leads to an extra one then another extra one and the following day its a few extras and before the alcoholic knows it.........
You are quite right - it's called topping up. If an alcoholic stops drinking for say 6 months, a year, 2 years, or even longer, if they start drinking again they don't start at the point as if they've never had a drink, but at the point they stopped drinking.
