My husband drinks daily and I can’t stand it.The kids all hate it also and we have mentioned it to him but he doesn’t stop.
He buys 3 large bottles of beer a night which I think is the equivalent of 4 to 41/2 pints and then sneaks out in the car way over the limit and buys another 3 large bottles.
He does this daily and I’ve told him constantly about drink driving and he always promises he won’t do it again and he’s sorry but he always does.
I hide the keys and he gets nasty and calls me names in front of the children.I have suggested he gets help for alcohol but he says he’s in control and he’s not got a drink problem and pretty much laughs it off.I get nowhere when I try to talk to him and the kids telling him they don’t like him drinking has also changed nothing.
He goes to work daily but as soon as he’s in he’s on the beer.Theres no nice chat and family meal it’s always us chasing him for a chat to which most of the time he’s drunk and slurs his words.
I feel like I have an extra child and I can’t relax and as a result I’ve stopped occasionally drinking as I feel the children need a parent who is responsible.
I try and tell myself it’s me and I’m overreacting but I don’t think I am.
Last week I went to work in the eve and when I got home he was drunk even after promising he wouldn’t.I found out he had the 3 large bottles and then went in the car for 3 more and took our daughter in the car.I was fuming but when approached he laughs it off as nothing.
He skips out showers too for a few days and doesn’t take pride in clothes.
I haven’t told any friends or family I feel too embarrassed and ashamed but I don’t know what to do.
I have nowhere to turn for advice and help but I can’t carry on like this.
Has anyone been in a similar situation as me and what did you do please.
