your hubby sounds like mine - im not hurting n e one.
little do they realise it tears you apart inside.
im afraid this wont just go away.
im still battling with my hubby over drink issues and we have been together 13 yrs.
my hubby is like a jekyll and hyde with drink.
i know you get angry, so do i.
but unfortunately i have another issue through drink, hubby had a one night stand - there is more to the story. but the drink did not help.
since the night it happened , he has changed somewhat. but he hasnt been out socially since april 08. but he drinks at home.
he has had periods where he has stopped (dad died- stopped for 6 months) vowed wouldnt drink again. but he did. after our recent event - he stopped for 3 months until i started having family bbqs , that i have had to curb for drinking reasons.
i read on one thread that someone suggest you take something away from him, i.e to curb the drinking - take away sex. your then depriving him. im gonna b honest this would not work in my situation, but i did curb the bbqs.
so i took something away.
i dont mind n e thing in moderation, but excess is just miserable for the partner or wife they are with. its quite a lonely existence. whilst they sleep of their drinking.
