My boyfriend has a drinking problem and it’s ruining our relationship

DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER being widowed I met a lovely man, three years ago, who told me he suffered from anxiety. It didn’t put me off.

We have amazing times together but he drinks whenever he gets nervous.

He sent me a message a few days ago telling me our relationship wasn’t working and it wasn’t fair on me

Each time my three teenage children have met him, he has been drunk. And the problem is getting worse.

He’s a friend from years back.

I’m 52, he’s 55 and divorced.

He sent me a message a few days ago telling me our relationship wasn’t working and it wasn’t fair on me.

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

I’m confused and upset but my kids have already told me they don’t like him.

I’ve seen the man with no drink inside him and he’s amazing.

DEIDRE SAYS: When alcohol plays a role in a relationship, things go downhill fast.

While booze might feel like a solution in the short term, it can quickly become a crutch. It will not get better as time goes on and is unfair on you.

Only he can decide to seek help for his anxiety.

But the worry and unhappiness when he has been drinking outweigh the happy moments the rest of the time.
