He will never stop drinking until he decides he really has to. The periods in hospital are useless unless there is intensive followup and hard work by himm after discharge, including acamprosate or other meds to reduce the risk of relapse, strong involvement in AA, and working with a counsellor. If he's not prepared to do this, you cannot do it for him, and I understand your frustration and wanting to give him up. Do NOT feel guilty, that doesn't help anyone. Part of the problem may be that you feel far too guilty, and he doesn't feel guilty enough
