Wife needing some advice
I am needing a little advice on how to help my husband.
He has been a drinker for about 12 years. It started out just beer and now it's mostly whiskey.
It caused problems with our oldest child who had to deal with the emotional abuse that goes along with drinking. You see, when he drinks, he gets angry and harse.
Now, we have a younger child and I do not want this child to have the same experience as our oldest.
He used to have a pattern: every other day of drinking to the point of oblivion. Then it got to be where there was no pattern, just drinking any day.
If I complain or say anything about his drinking, I am a nagger. So it has gotton to where when he drinks, he is on his own. I do not hang out with him, enable him in any way and most certainly do not let my little child hang around him.
Well, to finally get to the point: he told me that he is cutting back and is going to try to quit drinking. This was a decision he made all on his own and I am very pround of him and want to help him in any way that I can.
Do you have any ideas as to how I can help him and encourage him.
I have noticed that he is having trouble sleeping. Is this normal?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
