I've been married to partner for 14 years. He left the military 11 years ago and has struggled to find a job he enjoys and pays well. He had quite a few knock backs and lost a lot of confidence and would have a few drinks to feel better. Gradually his behaviour became more selfish and irresponsible. Not coming home as he'd fall asleep somewhere drunk or he'd spend more money than we could afford on a night out. He's wasted so many weekends sleeping off a hangover rather than spending time with his family. His moods when he's not drinking are awful.. Always looking for something to shout about and can say the meanest things. I worry that I'm failing them by not protecting them more. They deserve a loving father and it devastates me that he isn't that. I've tried to help him but he thinks there is nothing wrong. I miss the person he was but I feel no choice left but to leave.
