Where does he get drunk? Out with friends, or home alone? How does he act when he’s drunk? Has he ever hurt you or your daughter? Has his drinking affected his job or other important parts of your lives?

If you’re thinking of leaving, first thing I’d suggest is get a job.

Sometimes it affects his job. I just had my resident permit in Ireland and I don’t want to lose it. But sometimes like this situation I really want to leave him. I never depend on someone in my life. Its just now because daycare here is so expensive we are just waiting for our daughter that she turns 3 years old so we don’t need to pay full so I can get back to work as well. But I couldn’t stand him anymore and I feel like I don’t love him anymore.

I think you need to figure out what your next steps should be if you decide you’re dumping him. I don’t know what those are but I can tell you with absolute certainty that I would get out of there and do it now before this current situation has too much influence on what my child considers to be “normal” in her home.

Well… for me, first I’d decide if he’s an alcoholic. Does he drink every day? Does he get drunk/ black out every time or most of the time?
If he is a true alcoholic then I’d talk to him about AA.
If he is just a social drinker…. drinks on weekends, with friends, special occasions and the odd beer at home but seems in control of when he drinks, then I’d see if y’all can compromise. No drinking around the kid etc. maybe couples counseling. Etc. Try to remember why you loved him. He’s probably been this way all along, so it might seem random to him that it’s this big of a deal all of the sudden.
But regardless, if you want to leave him, you need a job and to be able to afford to leave. Or accept that the situation is bad enough to go to a shelter.

How long has he been drinking for? Have you tried to help him stop and understand the reason it started?

he get really drunk every week and he almost drink every day. I loved him when he is sober and he knows that.
He drinks already ever since we are dating but he just became worst and we already have 2 year old daughter.

Does he know how much his drinking affects you and your family?
Does he recognise he has a problem?
Do you think that, if it came to it, he would choose you over the drink?
If all your answers are no, then Bee, you need to find a way out.
My cousin’s husband was a drinker even before they got married. Afterwards it escalated and he pulled a knife on her. She didn’t leave, she has no job and nowhere to go.
Problem drinking always escalates

If his drinking is interfering with his job and his relationship with his wiife, yeah; he absolutely has crossed the line into full blown alcoholism.
If he will not acknowledge it and get into treatment, either AA or a rehab facility, leaving is OP’s only option.
There is an innocent hostage who does not deserve to be forced to live with an alcoholic parent.
