My husband is a alcholic and I don't know what to do....It is killing our family and he doesn't want to get help! I just found out he is drinking at work...I have tried everything to understand the addiction but can't. Does anyone have any advice for me???

Im sorry to hear about your problem I remember putting my wife through the same thing, and I held her prisoner for a long time, but you have to live and enjoy your life, I would suggest going to a few alnon meetings, and learning how to live your life we only decide to make a change when life is so horrible that we make a decision that we our powerless over alcohol, I was alcoholic of the hopeless variety and I only changed because I was sick of living with myself alcohol is only a sympton of what is really wrong we are self-centered and selfish people that suffer from a spiritual malady that only God or higherpower can fix, I suggest praying for your husband to hope he gets better.God Bless you

i believe you should definitely find an al-anon meeting. my husband goes to them because of my alcoholism problems. i actually have 9 clean months but never could have accomplished them without going through a detox program and out patient...plus attending lots of meetings, having a sponsor and working a program. the support of AA has given me the gift of a new life and al anon has been of tremendous help to my husband. good luck and god bless.

I am a recovering alcoholic. 41 year old male, married 15 years, 2 kids & dog. I was much like the person you describe until I went to rehab about a year ago and have been sober ever since. I would be happy to share my experience and suggestions. Email: touchdowntom@verizon.net
