My husband had or has a drinking problem. He doesn't know when to stop. Anyway, we have both agreed that he needs to have a limit of two a day, if he drinks at all. (he will not adhere to the no drinking rule at all) Anyway, he never sticks to it. I found 6 empty bottles from last night hidden away. I am 9 months pregnant, and need him to be sober to take me to the hospital when I need to go. I have cried, gotten mad, told him how much it hurts me and how I need him to be sober, yet just won't do it. It's depressing me, and I just don't know what to do about it anymore. It seems that nothing changes his behaivor. He just decides to hide it instead. Any advice?Answer Question

Don't let him drive you to the Hospital,for one thing...He has to want to stop drinking..He will not do it for you or anyone else.
If he is hiding it form you,,then he has a big problem..Me,,I would go threw the house and get rid of all the alcohol in the house.Daily if I had to..

He has a disease and until he realizes it and wants to get help there is nothing you can do. I would strongly suggest contacting AL-Anon and getting some help. http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/about.html

For starters he has to want to stop, as long as he feels like he needs a drink he is going to have it it is too far long for him to stop. (It is just like any other habit smoking weed, smoking cigarettes, just any dumb habit that we do that we don't want to stop).
You can not make him quit, You will have to try to convince him somehow (GL) to go into some program where they can help him. This happens everyday.

Really theres nothing you can say or do until hes ready. The first step is for him to admit he has a problem after that it is the getting help part! You cant limit a alcoholics alcohol to 2 beers a day because that wont work if you haven't already noticed! If he is that bad than he needs rehab and you need to learn why alcoholics are the way they are that's why they have Al-anon meetings for you and AA meetings for him! Honestly people don't want to believe they have a problem and something in their life has to happen before they realize hey I cant do this any more and I need help! It is a very long road and will not be good for you or the baby to see! Eventually if he don't stop and get help you will have to make the choice of your husband or your baby! I'm so sorry you have to go through this it is very hard and sad!! Good luck hon! God will guide you!!
