@notgreatatnames: Honestly, if he doesn’t enter himself (WILLINGLY) into a treatment program you are looking at the rest of your life. If he doesn’t see the problem he will never change. My father, grandfather (was), my father’s sister and my sister are all high functioning alcoholics. Not drinking until they pass out, but holding steady employment. But nonetheless, they cannot not have a drink, several actually, every day (for the first 3) or almost every day (my sister). I understand that you love this man and he may be sweet and he’s trying so hard and he loves you too, but none of that will change his circumstance. Only he can do that. Even with treatment he will always be an alcoholic. It will be an uphill battle. If he’s willing to put in the hard work he can learn to live without alcohol. But he won’t be able to do it on his own. He needs professional help. If he’s unwilling to seek professional help and you are willing to stay, this will be your life, forever.
