I'm speaking from experience here... I was married to an alcoholic for 8 years. And the sad truth is, there's nothing you CAN do. I tried talking to him, I tried pouring his drinks down the sink, I tried getting him to go to therapy.... Unless THEY want to change, whatever you do won't make any difference whatsoever. Eventually, I just got fed up and left. It was hard to do, but looking back it was the best thing I'd done for myself in a long time. Now, I don't have any idea what's going on with him. Don't know, don't care.
