Today, my husband, who's a recovering alcoholic, and I are on holiday with our kids. He's decided he can have a few drinks because he deserves "a holiday too". He doesn't see why this should ruin ours. FML
I agree, your life sucks 30 619
You deserved it 3 168

happymum_fml tells us more.

He got my point in THE end. Took me a while though!

What a way to ruin an holiday. Drinking isn't an "holiday" while you're on holiday. Try taking his money off him :)

leave him at the hotel when he passes out.

Replace all his vodka with water

Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic

Grammar- its not an holiday. It's a holiday

woooh I just got over my sickness from alcohol! Ooooh yay a holiday! I'm gonna drink!! Good luck op

it's* - don't criticise someone elses grammar when you have a grammatical error yourself.

Who is that aimed at? ^

Take everything in moderation, including moderation.

It doesn't matter, it can be done either way.

I'm an idiot? Where's the capital letter on "idiot", seeing as you used a capital letter before the word.

Not recovering if he's still drinking.

We never use "else's" for some reason. I live in UK though :P

Hes a recovering Alchoholic, and he wants to have some 'drinks' as a holiday. Youre telling me you dont realize the issue in this?

Why isn't it? Being drunk turns you aggressive towards your kids and family. You wouldn't want to be on holiday with a drunken father constantly abusing you, would you?

There's a reason why he's an alcoholic, obv he abuses drinking. Now his family is going to have to babysit him...not fun

9 Maybe you should know your facts first. Not all alcoholics are abusive. I'm not defending him. I'm just stating facts.

50 - I meant aggressive?

65. Read the last sentence of your comment, you said 'abusive'....

Not all drunks are aggressive either. I've been told that I get rather passive and my fiancee gets very flirty when she's drunk.

Yeah, drunk people turn aggressive and abusive.

That was a seriois fail

You were a SERIOUS fail

It's funny because all the comments that said fail got thumbed down. So wouldn't that be a fail too?

I enjoyed it

34, Gin + tonic - the tonic= straight gin. Not quite non-alcoholic.

Well he sounds like a dick

eh it's a few he can try a light drink in all fairness kinda over reacting now

He sounds like Scott disick.

Why is daddy puking and calling me a stoopid biatch?

Go camping where a cliff is near by and let the bastard drink as much as he wants

Reply to zaveeshaveesh- your comment was stupid

No it wasn't you asswipe why is your name so fucked up?

I don't know I just like cantaloupes

Have you even tried talking with him about this? Unless he's a complete idiot, I'm sure he'll understand?

No he wouldn't, most alcoholics are in denial and would pick alcohol over their family.

My dad has been in the hospital once because of his drinking, and he was arrested once for hitting my mom while under the influence and that hasn't stopped him from drinking... If that won't stop him then I doubt talking to him will.

@amit93 - If you're going to bash someone's comment, you should probably use spellcheck next time. I believe it is you who is the SERIOUS fail. @OP - Sit him down and carefully explain that even one drink can cause a relapse. If he begs to differ, you may need to take action and let him know if you notice his drinking habits coming back, rehab will be in his future.

If he's truly in recovery, he should know by now he can't have a "holiday" from his addiction & that there is no such thing as " just 1 drink." I don't think his "recovery" has been genuine.

It's obvious he cares more about himself than his family and what they'll go through if he starts drinking again. How on Earth can a "recovering" alcoholic justify drinking as a holiday? Once he starts again, he won't stop. Fyl, op.

alcoholics can justify ANYTHING!
