    I read the history, they both have a huge problem with alcohol!

    As I said I have stopped drinking completely. I need my wife back!
    I guess I misunderstood "I have stopped drinking completely now until this is resolved" This did not sound permanent. Please seek help.

    I hope you are going to or seeking help through AA. I doubt very highly the meetings have stopped....contact them and see. You will find a lot of help and resources through this agency to cope with your situation. It's for anyone, and the meetings run 24/7. Do it for her, yourself, and your children. IMO your children, when they get old enough will have knowledge of this....stop it before that happens. I come from a family of alcoholics...you just can't stop drinking, and think you can handle drinking again....that's A #1 - all out DENIAL. And yes alcoholism can be passed onto your children, they are vulnerable....better start now working on having a alcohol free life.

    Given that everyone in your family and hers seems to be on board, I would consider seeking out interventionists in your area to start the intervention process so you can get her some help.

    If you don't, there is indeed a chance she might end up causing harm to herself, her children, or both as a result of her drinking.

    Joining AA together would be a great idea since it appears alcohol is a problem for you both.

    Why don't you make a call and see where the nearest meeting is held and go by yourself first and then broach the subject with her.
