Yes, it is escalating. Yes, the drugs will harm his liver. Look under I can't live without speed...maybe for Brenda's post (3rd down) it will tell you what drugs can do.

As far as the Tylenol PM and Advil PM goes, those aren't really sleeping pills, they have benadryl in them because benadryl makes everyone sleepy.

Thanks for opinions.

For the life of me I still can't understand how anyone could drink that much and still function.

I dont have any advice for you other than to tell you that material things (your house) are not worth your peace of mind. I lost everything a few years back but gained peace and it was WELL worth it.

I also wanted to tell you that when I was drinking at bars and got drunk I was the worlds best tipper. Often exceeding the bill. This could be where some of the money is going.


Sometimes you fake it, till you can make it.

Is the situation escalting?

I keep wondering each time you post, how much worse things can get for you.

I also keep wondering what you are doing for yourself, and to help you enter recovery for being the spouse

of an alcoholic and being codependent.

You can recant every detail of what he does. what he is doing and how bad he is....I would love to hear about you.

What are you are doing for yourself?

Take the keys to your life back from him...right now, he is driving, drunk driving your life, and you are a helpless passenger.

You didn't cause his addiction, can't control it, and can't cure it.

Just want to forewarn you to prepare yourself for a very bad bottom - on his part.
