Yes and No!

Don't expect your wife to listen to you if you are talking one thing with your words and doing another actions. I might be a good idea to refrain from drinking till she gets some recovery under her belt.

I can't see where you yourself have a problem with alcohol but you might want to pursue recovery yourself or get involved with Al-anon to learn more about the disease. Also try:
