I am a 29 year old Mother to one 17 month old Daughter. My partner has had a tough life and drinks on average 148 standard drinks of spirits a week! At the very start I never knew for a long time as he got so good at hiding his drinking from his last wife. When I did find out (after finding the stash) he opened up and told me he had heavy drink for years (now about 12 years) we worked at it for a long time but he kept slipping up! He keeps telling me he will cut down and it will change but they are empty words, I know this now from the last year at least. He won't go to the doctors, he won't go to a counsellor, he won't talk to his family, I'm not allowed to talk to mine (even though I secretly talk to my Dad he is my support person) but I am so stressed!! I can't leave but I don't feel like I have the strength to stay! So stuck! And advice? I use to just want help for him, now I need help for myself!!!
