OK. I gave up alcohol 18 months ago because I drank too much and it was causing health issues and I was fed up with doing stupid things and falling out with people. I'm 50 now so things like showing my tattoo on my boob isn't funny anymore. I'm proud of myself as it's something I never thought I would be able to do. I feel about of guilt about things that have happened in my past to do with drink and It has caused other issues too.... My husband is a drinker and I hate it. We have only been married 3 years. He has started drinking alcohol free beer at home but I know he would rather not. He likes his whisky too and has to get smashed when he goes out which was how I used to get. I don't expect him to give it up but I feel bad about him cutting down because of me because I know he misses it. I know he misses me drinking too. I'm not as much fun and sex is absolutely rubbish now. I don't know how to come to terms with accepting him drinking and being OK with it.
