Just seeking some support and/or advice here. Please no bashing....I'm feeling vulnerable enough posting this as it is.
My DH has a drinking problem. He is what you would call a functioning alcoholic, he drinks everyday but can still get up & go to work everyday. He buys on a daily basis a small bottle of Bacardi & two 20 oz beers.
He knows that alcohol has caused problems in our marriage. He then said that for his New Year's resolution he was going to stop drinking all together. He couldn't even go an entire week, he went to the liquor store yesterday & got his usual.
I know that when you are an alcoholic you can't quit just like that, sometimes you need outside help. I am just so disappointed that he doesn't know how to deal without alcohol. He knows he has a problem, but since he has gone to AA before & heard other people's crazy life stories - he doesn't think his problem is as bad as theirs. Hence, why it's not a big deal for him to drink.
If I stay with him I realize I am enabling his behavior. If I leave him, techinically speaking my life will be less stress. I don't know why I am so torn & why leaving is so hard. :-(
