Alcoholics Anonymous is for people who want to stop drinking.

You need to have a serious talk with him while he is sober. You need to lay the choices out very clearly. Either he stops drinking and becomes a responsible adult or you will remove yourself from the situation.

He is causing emotional damage to you and your children. Your primary responsibility right now is to your kids. I speak from experience when I say that alcoholism will destroy your family.

If your husband is willing to give up his family for alcohol then he is going to have a long hard road ahead of him.

If he is willing to get help there are plenty of programs, including Alcoholics Anonymous (and Alcohol Detoxification Programs) that can help him.

AL-ANON is support groups for people that live with an alcoholic!
AL-ATEEN is for children who have alcoholic parents.

There are numerous things that a person who lives with an alcoholic does that enables the alcoholic to drink.
AL-ANON helps you to understand what those things are and helps you to learn a new behavior to actually HELP the alcoholic refrain from being able to drink.

I said in my last post that Alcoholics Anonymous groups could put you in contact with AL-ANON NOT HELP THE PERSON LIVING WITH AN ALCOHOLIC.

I've experienced this first hand about 25yrs ago. I learned alot by going to AL-ANON meetings. I learned things I was doing that were enabling my now ex husband to drink that I had no idea I was doing.

This group is tops as far as I'm concerned. Most definitely worth a try~what have you got to loose?
