So it's been a while since I've been on here. 18 months ago, after the last incident, my husband seeked professional help and completely stopped drinking. He returned to the person I knew before he had this problem and the arguements stopped. I started to like him again.
Around Christmas last year, I made the mistake of saying he's done so well and I wouldn't mind him drinking if he was in control. Over the last 8-9 months he's slowly started drinking, and glimpses of the 'other' person made little appearances. I've told him several times, and of course he claims to have it under control. Wanting to give him the chance, I've said nothing more and tried to stay alert just in case I'm right. Tonight was the night. We've been on a once in a lifetime holiday with my family, sister, brother and their families l, for the last 2 1/2 weeks. He was drinking yesterday but we were all out so it wasn't so bad. Today we were at a water park where he drank all day, as soon as we leave, all he's thinking about is getting beers. We're back at the villa, the adults are relaxing and the kids are in or around the pool area, having fun. My husband goes out for a cigarette, within minutes he's lost his temper with our 16 year old son, and kicked him into the pool. Our youngest daughter was crying hysterically, my nieces were disgusted and told him that was wrong. I was crying hysterically also pulling my son out the pool yet my angry husband was so fixated on how he was justified in his actions. Thankfully my son was not physically hurt but he so easily could have. My husband is oblivious to the potential danger he put our son in, and that his action is abuse. I'm so distraught, embarrassed, angry (mostly with myself). My family and nieces and young nephews are completely shocked as they've never witnessed this side of him. I told him after the last incident that I would allow another one. We fly back on Sunday, arriving Monday morning. I'm trying to make arrangements or at least a plan seeing as I can't sleep. I'm not putting our children through this anymore.
