Dear Julie,

There is a reason that alcoholism is called a 'family disease'. When the alcoholic drinks it not only affects himself but those around him. Family members are often the ones that suffer the most due to the alcoholics drinking.

I would suggest that you arrange an assessment at an Addiction Treatment Centre to assess the severity of his alcoholism.

there are also support groups for family members of alcoholics. Al-Anon will be able to guide you in your own journey of recovery.

Regards,
Karen
