Our expert says:
He is a serious problem drinker, perhaps an alcoholic, an until he recognizes this and gets it fixed with proper expert help, and stays fixed, he will never be a suitable companion for anyone. You can't save him from his drinking problems --- he has to want to, and has to do the work himself. You seem to have made a better start in placing the responsibility back on him --- keep to that resolve. And don't rely on his promises, but on the results. Let him continue to work with AA and reconsider your position only once he's been dry and responsible for at least 6 months. Don't soften because you sentimentally want him around ( which is entirely understandable ) --- if he resumes drinking, as you well know, he may be there physically and absent psychologically. Stick to your guns, for your sake and that of the baby
