I wasn't sure where to post this, but this is something I would like to share with you all. My fiance and I have been having issues when he gets home from work. He is a full time cook and works long hours in a restaurant. He drinks every day after work, but I slowly started to realize he was lying to me about just how much he drinks. He would tell me that he had a beer, but he was acting as if he binge drank prior to getting into the vehicle. He was starting to act very out of character and would be extremely emotionally abusive. It finally hit me that I needed to bring the early signs of alcoholism to his attention. It began with a huge argument and him saying some awful things to me. I'm a very passive person, so I was letting him treat me terribly throughout the entire ordeal. I broke down and let him have it. Surprisingly, he broke down and responded in a way I wasn't expecting. The next morning he apologized and told me that he is going to start making positive changes in his life. He hasn't drank for about 48 hours, so it's a start. He is making the decision to stop drinking because it has started to effect the people around him. I wanted to share this as a way of vocalizing my feelings. I needed to let it out to people that may understand what I'm going through.
