It is an illness, but he isn't taking ownership of it. He isn't going to AA, or counseling, or admitting it is a problem.

I have a feeling if he were owning it and working diligently to understand why he drinks and develop new coping skills - you would be in a different place.

It is just too exhausting when the alcoholic or anybody else for that matter, that refuses to own their issues and try to make changes. We can't want it enough for them.. or love them enough or anything enough.. It is in their(his/her) hands.. they have to make the choice.

I'm glad you are looking forward to work. I used to work in the biotech industry - scientists ROCK!
