My husband has been to AA in the past and has excuses of why he went which to me says denial... i knew once i got to meet his family that it was likely an addiction... his father is an acoholic and so is his grandfather.... his parents have been divorced for a long time and remarried... his mom and step dad drink on the weekends... my husband was not as bad or maybe i didnt see it in the beggining but now he pretty much drinks every weekend even if its just a beer or 2 and i have noticed he will have one or 2 at night on some or all of the week days... oh and usually on the weekend its more than 2... i think it has gotten worse this past year, we have a 2 year old son and i dont want him thinking that its okay to drink a lot when he gets older... he is not abusive or anything like that but does act a little different . is it wrong for me to want him to stop or make it a once in a while thing ... whenever i mention how much he drinks he says its not that much...maybe im overreacting ...what do you think? am i in the wrong?Answer Question

I had to ask this of my husband last year. Yes, I think that you are completely within your "right". This is your CHILD. If you don't want them to be around alcohol then stop it from happening. I am a lush and let me tell you, we will say ANYTHING to justify our drinking. I am a different kind of alcoholic than my husband. He could drink all day long and had been for years. To him he had to drink to be "normal". He functioned all right and wasn't abusive or anything but he was extremely lazy and didn't pay myself or our children any attention. He stopped drinking and wallaahhhhh he was a better person.
