Just wanted some advice. My husband is a functional alcohol and is trying to recover on his own. Does he need to give up work to fully recover as work is his stressor/trigger?

He should continue to work and get help dealing with his triggers in a healthy way. Life is full of stress.

It is very hard to stop on your own with so many triggers and easy access to alcohol. You may want to seek professional advice for free with addiction specialist.

Hi, I was that husband...I think. There are a lot of particulars that might help more with advice, but one thing is sure...if he's an alcoholic it will not get better while still drinking. I am 52 and for years I could manage a respectable exterior and even thrive professionally, but behind the scenes there was some vulgar and deplorable behavior. I am not sure that ability to maintain was a good thing in regards to progress. Hope all is well and he has found some relief, for real
