: My husband is an alcoholic and has been for nearly ten years, we have been together for four years and have two young girls of our own. I have tried sending him to A.A groups, councelling, and on numerous occasions tried to get him to see the doctor for help nothing has worked so far, as I am writing this I don't know where he is, or what state he is in, even alive, He and I together are desperately in love and, both of us want the drinking to stop, but it is uncontrollable no matter how much he wants to stop, please, please somebody must be able to help, please.
It would be an idea for you to check out whether there is an Alanon meeting in your area for you. This would help you understand the nature of addiction and your role in your husbands lifestyle. If he isn't at the stage of getting help and making it work for him then you need to seek help either through counselling and/or Alanon. Good luck. (alcohol and drug counsellor)
