I feel really silly posting as my problems may seem very little compared to what some are going through but I feel I have nowhere or no-one to talk to.
My husband has always been a drinker, we have been married for 9 years, but over recent years its got heavier and I am worried about the effect it is having on both his health and our relationship.
He knows he drinks too much but won't get any help and refuses to admit it is a problem he thinks its ok and normal and maybe it is but I am not ok with it. He drinks 4 nights a week, can drink 1 litre of whiskey and 2-3 bottles of wine, this weekend he he has consumed 2 bottles of wine and 1 litre of whiskey in 2 nights, he says he can because he hasn't had a drink all week, I think this is excessive and I really can't be bothered to have another argument with him over it so am avoiding him today.
I know I can't get him to stop drinking or reduce the amount, that has to come from him but he won't admit he needs help, I asked him last year to stop drinking for 7 days, he lasted 3 days.
He is making me feel really unhappy, unloved and worthless, tells me I nag him too much but its because I care and worry about him but if I am not sure how much longer I can go on living like this, dreading every weekend and holiday because of the way I am made to feel.
I have found a local Al-anon meeting which I am planning to attend next week for some support as I don't know what else to do right now.
Thanks for reading and well done if you got this far..
