My husband of 14 months is an alcoholic he has pulled time in jail for DUI's (5) and is on probation for his last one. His friends all of whom drink heavy; none of them except 1 is living with or married to someone they all know I don't like the drinking and yet they still call him very often and say "Let's get together" of course he goes. His family gives him money to buy alcohol when he doesn't have money in my eyes they are just contributing to him and his drinking. He is a very jealous man and wants to start arguments or fights if another man speaks to me in public. He has been through all the support groups they make people attend after getting out of jail, he has been to a detox center for a month all of which he did before we were married. Only 1 of his close friends has a steady job and they end up here at my house after I have gone to bed and he drinks with them and lays out of work the next day or he says he's going to the store right down the street and ends up at one of his "buddies" house and returns later reaking of alcohol and wanting to argue. His friends need to realize that alcohol is a weakness of his and need to stay away from him with it, they don't have wives that they can loose. Please if anyone can offer me any suggestions on this please help me.

Janet,<P>Look in your phone book under "Alcohol" for a subheading called "Addiction treatment" or something similar. There is nothing you can do for your husband until he is ready to overcome his addiction, but do seek help for yourself. Alanon is a support group for the families and loved ones of alcoholics, and they can provide you with firsthand advice and support.<P>Good luck.
