My OH was diagnosed with chronic liver disease due to alcohol 2years ago
He did not drink any alcohol from diagnosis to October when he went out and had
some beer. He said immediately that he wouldn't do it again and it was out of his system
Yesterday he went out at 12noon and came back at 01.00 he had obviously drunk beer again, tho he states he only had four pints
I am not only disappointed for me but also our two children who altho 21 and 15 yrs all share in the disappointment and the feelings that we are with little to him
He ststea he will be a long time dead and doesn't wish to be a saint .
I honestly don't think I can be taken back into the cycle of his binge drinking again
I have decided I want him to leave, he won't go quietly and will try to justify what he has done by whatever means he can
Where will i get the strength to go through this separation from? I just so don't want my children to think that his behaviour is acceptable, I feel guilty as I have really enabled his pattern of behaviour throughout their lives, and really have only realised the full angst it caused over the last two sober years .
Sorry if this is a downer at Christmas
