I've been reading everyone's posts and I feel like I'm in the same boat, and without answers. My husband attempted suicide in a blackout drunk 1 1/2 months ago. After a 5 day stay in the hospital he was released and began an outpatient program for alcohol. He was doing so well and on his 30 day mark he relapsed. He promised the next day he would return to his therapy and work the steps.... the next day he drank again. I heard the same sob story following that episode, and the next. its been a week now and he has been drunk every other day. The only time he isn't drinking is when he is too hung over to get out of bed. He has been unemployed for 5 months now. He lost his job from drinking too much and missing too many days of work with hang overs. When he drinks he becomes a completely different person... mean and immature. We are newlyweds and i just feel like things should be different. His drinking in the months before his hospitalization just got progressively worse and I'm so afraid that is happening again. I know that I can't make his quit, that he has to want it, but how low does one person have to fall before they realize that HAVE to get clean???
