My husband is drinking 4-8 pints every night. This has been going on for a couple of months now, 4 maybe 5. Every night he comes up with some creative/stupid excuses as to why he will be drinking that night. We're splitting anyway so I'm past caring what he's doing with his life so I let him buy the booze. When he's drunk he's not making me have sex with him or does not touch me the way I don't want him to. He just listens to music or watches films and I feel safe. I still feel bad about not caring. Does this make me a selfish person? Shall I try to help him? I mentioned this to him, but he said he has everything under control and he won't even recognise he may have a problem. Well, has he got one? His father was an alcoholic, very violent and abusive to his family. My husband says I shouldn't worry as this is not something you inherit with your genes. What is the next thing to happen after drinking 4-8 pints a night for such a long time?
