I wondered about the drinking. It might be irritableness from giving it up, or he might be coping badly with giving up and sneaking a few in when alone. In that case, he might be irritable because he can't drink when he's with you.

Do what Dr H says and stick to your plan, until you're sure you want to give it up. The point is not to give in and let him move home when he isn't making you happy.

Another possibility is that he is beginning to realise how hard it is to shake the addiction. What about gently suggesting AA again?
