linda_jt Posted July 10, 2008 Report Share Posted July 10, 2008 I am newly married, even though we had lived together for 4 years prior. I have been aware of my husbands drinking, and I think I was in denial. I love the sober man. He is my hearts desire, my love forever, but when I see him drunk, it makes me nearly ill. He occasionally tries to hide his drinking (the cans, etc) but it is just so obvious when he drinks. He is irritable, irrational, and I (stupidly) try to talk to him. When he is sober in the morning, he will apologize and say he needs to knock it off, and get himself right. Of course that doesn't happen. He has gone for nearly a week without drinking. So now he thinks he has no problem. He also tells me...he isn't hurting anyone. He doesn't start arguments most of the time now, so in his mind, there is no problem that he has started drinking by one pm, and will continue till he puts himself to bed at 7. Where do I start? What can I do? I know the whole co-dependency stuff, and enabling. I just don't want to move my children out and make their lives a scary mess. The older two are aware of his drinking. The youngest is not, and I don't know how to address this. please please whatever you can share....Linda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
