Probably a stupid question since I am worrying anyway (but sometimes I tend to do that on small things, so need some clarity.)
My DH said he drank all the time before he met me. He said he would go to work drunk, come home and drink more, about 5-6 days a week. We've been together 8 years, for a while he didn't drink much, maybe a beer or two a week, if that most weeks.
But now...he drinks about 5-6 times a week. I sometimes find bottles/cans in weird places, I guess hiding them. Used to he'd buy a 4 or 6 pack of beer every day, or cheap wine every day (like Wild Irish Rose kind of cheap) and would drink one/pack of those everyday. Now since we've moved he has been drinking vodka.
He says he doesn't have a problem, he can stop whenever he wants. But I am worried that it may get even worse. He doesn't get falling down drunk, I guess it just relaxes him, I don't know...
I don't know what to do. He hides it from his family that he drinks, even his brother (he is pretty close to one of them.)
I've been around scary alcoholics, that terrifies me that he'll end up like that. I just don't know how to go about this. I've told him that it scares me that he'll end up like the alcoholics I've seen at the hospital, sick and dying from years of drinking all the time, but he just says that he won't get that way and can quit when he wants to, but then goes back to drinking every day.
Any help, suggestions, thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
