  • I have dealt with this same thing for a long time. I know how it feels to not want to break up the family but living like this doesn't do anyone any good. I finally laid it all out for my husband - stop spending hour upon hour or even days drinking or me and the kids are moving out and we're done with him. He still has a drink occassionally but he knows if one time he does a disappearing act, we are leaving. Some people will tell you not to threaten anything you are not willing to do. That is true. He will keep pushing if he knows you won't carry through with what you say. Ultimately, he has to decide to get sober or at least not let it control his life. You have to decide if you want to be miserable for the rest of yours. Good luck. I know it's hard.
