Sounds like my AH. As a matter of fact, he quit drinking last Saturday, after a night of bingeing. He started taking Antabuse. He could only take it for 3 days because it gave him diarrhea. I looked up side effects and this was not one of them. Of course, he started drinking again this Sunday. I refuse to go to places with my husband where his friends are getting drunk. I am miserable and they know he won't get drunk with them because I'm there.
He asks me if he can have one beer. It is not my place to tell him no. I just don't want to be there when he does. I know he can NEVER have just one.
I know how you feel. My husband has no friends that don't drink. I really loved this guy at one time. Now I am not so sure I love him. I just want to be happy.
