Our expert says:
Nobody especially not a married man, "NEEDS" to go out and get drunk. If indeed they have a drinking problem / problem drinking, or alcoholism, they may think they have such a need, and act on it.
Sometimes a family meeting, with you backing up your mom, to make i clear to him that his behaviour causes problems for others, and will cause problems for him, and is unacceptable, may help.
Unless and until he faces the facts and admits that he has a problem, he will be unhelpable. And mere promises to stay sober, without sincere engagement in proper expert help, are meaningless and worthless.
