I have been married to my husband for 27 years, in fact he was my first and only love. I have been going to counselling for many years myself as I suffer from panic attacks and have a low self esteem. He drinks every night and goes out about 4 nights a week and comes home drunk, turns the bedroom light on and wakes me up and then gives me verbal abuse. He has hit my 24 year old son and was told by the police to keep away for 6 months, which he did. He shows no love towards any of us, and tells me he hates me. He doesn't think he has a problem, as he thinks an alcoholic is someone who gets up and drinks first thing in the morning. He keeps threatening me saying that he is going to make myself and children suffer and sell the house, although he can't, as it is in both our names. I am afraid to spend money just in case he does though. I am living on a knife edge all the time.Answer Question

Since you do not have any young children to care for (atleast you did not mention that you do) than you can either have him removed from the home or you can leave the home.
There are shelters that will take you in. There are programs to help you find jobs and network with people. Counseling is what you need to build up your esteem.
You do not have much of a marriage if you choose to stay and deal with his abuse.
Let him be miserable alone, you deserve ALOT better.
