My partner (been together 20 yrs this yr) is a big binge drinker. He works 12 hr day and night shifts. When he goes from days to nights which is every week or so he will stay up all night drinking rum and coke. Often going to bed at 5am and sleeping through until the late afternoon. Also when he is on rest days he will drink most nights but not the same quantity as when he goes from day to night shifts. He has done this for yrs!!! Often getting through a whole bottle of rum in a big binge. I have tried speaking to him until I'm blue in the face but he just won't stop or cut down. Today when he got up he complained he had a really painful headache (which he v rarely gets even after drinking alot). He looked deathly white and after taking some pain killers vomited vast amounts. I am so worried that this is the start of his health seriously deteriorating. I just don't know what to do? We have a 4 yr old together. He should want to stop or cut down for us but I cannot get through to him. My family are 4 hrs away by car... Spoke to my mum tonight who said he needs to be told that you are not prepared to watch him kill himself. He needs to be shocked by something... Me giving a serious ultimatum. Or getting some kind of blood test to see what state his liver is in. Help.
