Patricia D A Wife From DE

NEED HELP! My husband has alcoholic hepatitis and he won’t stop drinking.

My husband is still drinking even though his doctor has warned him several times that if he doesn’t stop he will be dead before he is 60. He was diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis a few months ago, and I can tell it’s getting worse. I’m worried he might have cirrhosis. I’ve reached the point that I don’t know who to turn to. I want to save him but I don’t know how to do it. Does anybody have advice?
Michelle D I would say take care of yourself first. That's the only thing you have control over.
Wife17 It sounds like you need to have an intervention. An alcoholic will often minimize their condition and it takes all of their loved ones getting on the same page and insisting they get help. There are professional interventionists that can help give the right guidance in how to do it appropriately but also a lot of great info on this site in the university section.
