I have been doing the over drinking program for about a month now. I believe in it and it has helped me a ton. My question is, what to do if my spouse does not support me in this program? I am not ready to stop drinking completely but want to drink less. My drinking has caused my spouse and I to have relationship problems and my spouse is afraid drinking is more important than our relationship. I do not believe this. I just want to decrease my drinking the right way so it doesn’t backfire on me. I feel he wants me to do it the way he thinks I should.
I have tried to stop in the past and it has lead me to lying to my spouse. I want to be honest and drink in a healthy balanced way. Am I being selfish by not stopping drinking for our relationship? He gets anxiety when I drink any alcohol. I have started to tell him about this program and would like him to be involved if he can support me in it. He thinks I should also get some type of evaluation from a professional in case my problem is serious or I am an alcoholic. Thank you!
