    Thumbs up My DH has decided to stop drinking

    Well my DH is an alcoholic he has been well forever I suppose. Last weekend he went out with friends and lets say came home so plastered that he was talking craziness. Now I must confess he truly scares me when he gets this way. About a year or so back he actually kicked in my wrought iron security screen(wow what a false sense of securlty those are) in one of these rages. Ok well after last weekend he actually scared himself and has decided its time to stop drinking. We went to a funeral Thursday -friday with his family who all drink heavily and he drank water and soda. I am so proud of him. Its gonna be a long road but we are trekking it together. Wish us luck!

    Wishing him the strength and determination to make this positive change. Hope he'll ask for help if the going gets too tough from people who can give him whatever he needs to make this a change that sticks.
    Hugs to you.

    It is a difficult road. Take it from an Irish Catholic family. I think they all drink in my husbands family. But the first step is admitting there is a problem and then the courage and support to change. You must remember that he must do the changing and you sometimes will feel so lost. I don't know what your religion is, but my nephew just finished rehab for drinking and he learned alot through the aaa book. Maybe try to find one and read it. It was very interesting. Also be sure to look up on how family factors into the recovery. These are just suggestions and I know you don't know me, I was just being helpful. I hope that I didn't offend.
    Good luck
