I have been married for 23 years and my husband has always been a heavy drinker. Over the last 10 years his drinking has sliwly got worse and worse. He will admit he is dependent on drink but wont admit he is an akcoholic. He doesnt touch alcohol until 5 pm but then drinks at least 2 cans of lager and a bottle of wine every night. He also has quite a few medical priblems and is i am sure adficted to cocodomol and tramadol. I feel i am his carer. He has got a lot worse over the last year and falls over a lot at night with a few trips to hospital for cuts and injuries. I have to carry him to bed and watch him constantly. He suffers frim stress anxiety and now even ocd traits and would almost say he could be diagnosed with some form of autism. He is unsocial, dislikes people, awkward and gets fixated in his routine. He has lost so much weight I feel like I am watching him slowly kill himself. I work full time and support us both. I lie for him, cover up and make excuses constantly. I know he is vulnerable but im just list as to what to do for him or me.
