I need Advice
Posted by Jasmine16 on 14 December 2016.
My husband and I have been together for 16 years. Over the past 5 or so years he has started drinking heavily every night. He can easily drink a bottle of gin 1 Litre straight in less than 2 days. Its horrible I have tried to talk to him just calls me awful names and once or twice has gone for me. I don't understand because he did Dry January and stuck to it just drinks heavily the rest of the time. I am worried now cause recently he has started filling bottles up with water and hiding the empties. I think he may have cottoned on to the idea that I am monitoring what he is drinking. We have 3 children and I work on a Saturday night but can only do so if my 15 year old is in the house to care for my youngest child. He is able to hold down his job never missed a days work through to alcohol, but I fear he is over the limit in the morning. I have several times wanted to report him but fear this will make things 100 times worse as he will lose he job and be stuck at home together. I have been to see my GP to get some advice but feel let down. All I want to know is how to talk to him without an argument,
