Hi, I'm married to an alcoholic..we've been together for 13 yrs, and I'm in denial about how bad it's getting. I guess my question to you guys is this..is there anything at all that I can do to get him to really see how bad he's hurting me and want to quit? Everyone tells me that it's something that only he can do for himself and he has to really have the desire. So, is there anyone out there who has stopped drinking because of a loved one? Is there anything at all that I can do other than threaten to leave? I know he loves me, I'm just wondering if there's any hope whatsoever or if it's time to finally give up.
