Hi... I'm new here. My fiance informed me this morning that he's been hiding everclear around the house and has been drinking A LOT and OFTEN. We work very different hours and don't have a lot of time together. I've known there was some kind of problem, but I didn't know it was alcohol before this and he wouldn't tell me. When he did, I called my parents (my mom's a pastor and my dad is a recovering alcoholic) and we went to talk them. Things seemed promising. He called his parents and told them. He wasn't trying to justify it and he admitted that there's a problem and he needs to stop. My mom referred us to AA and Al-anon, so we went this afternoon and each visited with members. Now that we're home he's VERY resistant of the idea of attending meetings. He says he will go to the meeting tonight because I pressured him into it. The fact that he doesn't want to go REALLY scares me. He's sleeping right now, as he didn't sleep all night. I tried to take a nap, but just can't get any rest. I know that so far, I've done as much as I can to help us deal with this, but I just feel so lost and scared. I don't know what to do.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
