He is your husband, you should be able to talk to him about things like this. Just sit him down, when he is sober, and tell him how you feel.

How would you feel if he drove while drinking and killed someone, himself or your kids?

His behaviors affect your kids.

Be a nag, it could save a life or 2.

 because if I sound like a nag, it will only drive him to drink more.

That doesn't make sense to me, but I guess you know your DH much better than I do.
Good luck!

I wouldn't be worried about sounding like a nag. I would just tell him you are concerned and the reasons why. Make sure you go into the conversation with a solution, AA, therapy, whatever you think is best

My dh used to have a drinking problem. He would drink then drive, wake up not knowing where he was and flip out and would wanna argue with me. He even got a DUI when he was 19 or 20. I threatened to leave him and I meant it. He finally confessed to me that he knew he had a problem and didn't know when to stop drinking once he started. After I threatened to leave if it continued he stopped. He still has a beer everyday when he gets home from work and maybe 2-4 on weekends. Things are so much better now. I'm not saying to threaten him but just let him know how you feel. After growing up with a daddy that was in numerous accidents from drinking I hate it. It brings back all those bad memories. Dh's uncle has been in icu for 3 weeks now bc of a wreck he had due to drinking. He has a broken nose, neck, ribs, collapsed lungs, brain damage and damaged kidneys and hasn't been able to talk since the accident. Drinking is not worth it.
