Does My Husband Drink Too Much? – Daily Dilemma

The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.

Here is today’s dilemma:

I’m worried that my husband may have a drinking problem. The problem is , it’s not a “problem” yet. It seems hard for me to approach him about it when it really isn’t effecting his or our life in a truly negative way. He goes to work every day, does well, is a good Dad and Husband.

I’m all about adult beverages, I guess I worry more about when and why he drinks. Often times he comes home from work and will have a 6 pack to relax and relieve stress.  I know his job and life hes been hard but isn’t bad to use alcohol to escape?

I know people will ask so I’d say he will drink at least 4 days a week like that mostly 6 beers or less, sometimes on a bad day more. Those days are particularly tough on me because I feel for him and I’d love to help but once he gets in that drink it away mode, there is no talking to him or helping.  The weekends we do entertain a lot, friends come over and everyone drinks and at least one of those nights he will probably get pretty drunk.

So again, is this too much? I don’t want to nag or even make it worse. I just don;t know if I should approach it, and if so how?
