My husband drinks too much and it’s affecting his health — I can’t take it – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE MY husband has no control over his drinking. On nights out he would always end up having too much and now he gets drunk at home.

We have argued about this over the years but he just won’t get help. I know it is an illness but it’s so hard to watch your husband and the father to your kids self-destruct.

He’s lost time working through his drinking, also friends, and it’s now affecting his health. He will lose his marriage too if things don’t change.

I am 53 and he is 55. We should be enjoying quality time as a couple but instead I worry if he is going to have a drink as soon as he wakes up.

DEIDRE SAYS: This level of drinking is frightening and dangerous but tolerating this behaviour encourages him to continue.

He may sober up if he realises he will lose you. Tell him to get help through Drinkline (0300 123 1110).
