This patient support community is for loved ones of people who drink and are trying to quit for discussions relating to abuse, behavioral issues, caring for yourself, counseling, divorce and separation, enabling, guilt, and when to get medical help.
That's definitely something to be concerened about. Does he go to bed drunk? Is he abusive? It's not right even if he isn't abusive. Have you talked to him about it? Does he know he has a problem? He first needs to admit that he has a problem and he has to want to get help. I'm sure he loves you and should be willing to look for the help he needs. Try talking to him about it if you haven't. Good luck. I hope he sees it your way and realizes it's a problem to drink that much.
The fact that he was drinking when you first started out with him is no excuse for his continued drinking. You need to talk to him and let him know that you are serious. Tell him he needs to get help if he loves himself, loves you, and wants to continue being with you.
