Our expert says:
alcohol usually exposes some of the worst aspects of ourselves. Anyone who pushes you to drink and drive, let alone abuses you for not doing so, is stupid and dangerous. You seem to be discussing an alcoholic ( who will probably insist that this is not so ) and a serious Problem Drinker.
What I don't understand is why, after his most refent fracas, it is YOU who is seeking help, rather than him ? What id you do wrong or that needs fixing ?
For a start, he needs to see a shrink with an interest in alcohol problems, for a full assessment and make a serious plan for rehab and tratment to help him stop drinking and to stay stopped. Only if he can start to get a grip on his drinking, would it be worth thinking about couples counselling to work on the other relationship problems.
