It sounds like he needs urgent help. With this symptoms he might be putting his life in jeopardy. Sadly enough he has to want help for himself more than you want help for him.
Timing is very important when you are trying to convince someone to get into treatment. Wait for a moment where he is not drunk and sounds reasonable. Come for a loving place and not an accusative place. Talk to him about the danger he might be in and how you will support him through treatment…Regardless, he needs to see a doctor ASAP.
I hope he will see the light in your words.

I agree that you need to get him to a doctor. Why would you not have brought him in when he was 6 months clean? Did he refuse or was it not suggested?  My husband an myself both quit drinking (and everything else) when we found out we had HepC (cirrhosis of the liver). It's a lot easier to STOP after been given the news of our liver. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both. Liz & Gerry
