Your husband is an inconsiderate alcoholic, with apparently no genuine motivation to get a grip on his problem. It is NOT merely his life --- he is married, and with children, so his choosing to booze affects your life as well as his. This is not your fault --- he is currently choosing his booze ( and the friends who make him feel good about boozing ) over the marriage. Its not that he doesn't want you, but that he over-poweringly wants the booze more than anything else. And he may indeed feel that you are better off with your son than with him while he still doesn't have the guts to change. Check with your local AA is there's a nearby Al-Anon group for support of family of alcoholics.
