My husband has a big drinking problem.Everyday, he comes home from work with a 6 pck of 16 oz beers, and then as soon as he's done with that, he wants me to go get more. We live off his income, so of course I would let him drink as much as he wanted.....but he spends like close to 200$ or more on beer a month!!!!
I'm fed up!
I've told him that he has a drinking problem , and then he gets mad and says if I'm not happy, then I should just leave. I have two kids, both under 5, and I'm a stay at home mom..he turns the tables onto me, making it seem like I don't do ANYTHING!!
Then he starts name all my faults...no sex-drive and no job. I tell him that I don't wanna have sex because he's toasted everytime, and how can I get turned on with that. And then I tell him I don't have a job because everytime I get interview, I have to tell the employer that have to have a flexible schedule due to my husbands.....he tells me to tell them that. Why would someone hire someone who can't make it in when they need them?
Then my husband say's that I blame him, hence the drinking....
I'm happy, it's just the drinking is what makes me unhappy. He keeps telling me to leave....Should I??
I would leave with nothing, except my kids. No money, no job.. What should I do??

I would get a job and go back to school you should not have to work around his schedule get a job and take care of you and your kids. Maybe he should get some counseling he is a drunk if its starting to hurt your day to day living.

First off, an alcoholic won't get help until they can admit that they do have a drinking problem and if he is drinking everyday, then he is an alcoholic. My father was an alcoholic for a good part of my earlier years and it was very hard on my mother and us kids. He went through detox a few times before he could admit his addiction to alcohol and until he did admit it, he was sure that he wasn't an alcoholic. Point is, you can't force the issue and make them see themselves that way until they are ready to admit it to themselves. I don't know a woman that wants to be with a man intimately when he is wasted on alcohol and I fully agree with you on that issue. And, if he thinks that you don't have a job then he is blind and ignorant! Being a full time mom and homemaker is the hardest job I have ever done! But, it is also the most enjoyable. The leaving is totally up to you.
