My husband and I have been married for 11yrs. Increasingly over the years he has been drinking at night. At first it was a bottle of wine now and then and for the last five years or so it has been a bottle of wine or two each night. In the mornings he sometimes forgets the conversations we have had the night before and can't drive the car if he had to because he's over the legal limit. He still gets up for work and is very good at his job. I think he drinks too much and has a problem but he wont have it, he turns the arguments back on to me and my nagging him about everything. We have 7 children under 10yrs of age and he says it is his stress relief from everything. Between the drinking and his smoking, it's money we don't have. When we bought our house, we both decided to quit everything as the mortgage is expensive. I did cut everything out, but I didn't drink or smoke very much compared to him, but he hasn't been able to do it. Does he have a problem or am I a nagging wife?
