Unhappy help me cope with alcoholic husband

Im clueless as to what I should do with my husband who drinks from morning , wont sleep at night, makes howling sounds lying down drunk at night, wont let me and children this alcoholism?
I pour water on his face to make him quiet when he howls or neighbours would wake up. Please suggest what should be done?
He is a successful writer and well appreciated.
He used to have a fierce temper, it gets worse when denied drink.
please help with a remedy. he may soon lose his job if this gets worse.
I tried homoeo drops which made him sleep soundly at night. Now I have stopped it. Maybe I will start again.
I gave him spiritus que-glandium on the advice of a doctor.

Wink Re: help me cope with alcoholic husband

hi i am a recovering alcoholic . it sounds like this could be the case . but its up to him to deside . personal recomendation is . give him an ultamatum . that he seek help or else. an dont give in unless he is seriuos. tell him to get help or get out. if your afraid have some family or evan the police help you .family intervention. evan as a non alcoholic the defects rub off dont live like that. hope all works out , dont be codependnt . take action now. there is this book alcoholics anonymous. AA is in your local phone book , the book will benafit him an yourself in time. dont wait till something seriuos happens to you or you kids , including him its an incureable allergy . but he can get a 1 day reprieve. this has to come before anything else work an so on.good luck scottits almost 5 years now im living proof. oh he should go to AA meeting it works better that way. call there hot line . he may need detox. from withdrawral

Re: help me cope with alcoholic husband

Welcome sree,

It sounds like you have your hands completely full and it must break your heart to see this happening to your own husband and family.

It sounds as though he needs serious help here to be honest. It can be done but he does need to be willing! A family intervention or a rehab facility... You CAN NOT live like this and nor should your children have to either.

I am glad you came here. You will find a lot of support and we are here to help. You are not alone in this. There are millions out there that are affected by addiction.

I'm Secrets, It's a pleasure to meet you! Stick around and make yourself at home! Good luck to you. I will keep you and yours in my prayers!
