I am married to an alcoholic too. At least my husband does not go to bars or stray away from home, it's just that he needs, usually straight vodka, in his system every day. I can tell when he needs to hit that bottle because his moods can change very quickly. I knew he drank allot before we got married, but I saw nothing that drastic that would make me shy away from marrying him. He is very good to me, but allot of the time I am embarassed by things that he does and says when he has been drinking. There are nights when he can hardly stand up and runs into the walls and stuff like that and sometimes I worry that he is going to drink himself to death. I can't see how his stomach or his throat can tolerate this and am surprised that neither one has been eaten away by the straight alcohol. He also drinks allot of brandy and rum, sometimes whatever he can get his hands on. We usually cannot go anywhere, if a little distance or time away, without him taking a flask or two, or buying a bottle at our destination. I just thought this group would be helpful to see what other people are going through and to vent if I need to. This can be hard to deal with at times, but I know he will never change.
