At a loss

I have never posted here before, I need help, my husband who has a drinking problem, said last night that he won't be seeing his counsellor anymore. He said that if him drinking 6 beers a night is a problem for me, then too bad. Is it a problem? I think it is, but he is justifying his drinking because he works hard, doesn't hit me or the kids. He is also on anti depressants for PTSD. His counsellor had suggested a three day a week non drinking and in his drinking days light beer, he said stuff that I will drink what I want, what am I supposed to do, our marriage is suffering at a result and I think that this will be what ends it. Is there anywhere I can go for help or support? Thanks.

Re: At a loss

Hello Mumwife and welcome.

Please look into Alanon,as this can help you to deal with an addicted family member.

Antidepressants and alcohol doesn't present for a good combination at all.I truly hope he reconsiders;for everyone's sake.

When in doubt, post it out.
