My Husband Is an Alcoholic. I Need Help and I Don’t Like Al-Anon?

Question by Miss Informed: My husband is an alcoholic. I need help and I don’t like Al-Anon?
He has agreed again that he’ll stop drinking. He’s drinking 1/2 a liter of vodka, in addition to beer, wine or whatever else he can find, in a day. Last night, between the hours of 7pm and 3am he drank all but about a cup of 50% alcohol vodka from a 750ml bottle. He was also drinking hard cider.
I’m totally disgusted, frustrated, hurt and angry. I’m tired of making excuses for him and giving things up because of his drinking. I’m embarrassed angry because he lets it control him and it affects everything. He was even called out on it at work. I can’t bring myself to drink alcohol because I’m afraid it will either trigger him or make him feel like it’s ok to drink. I feel guilty though because he really can’t seem to control it, no matter how much he insists he can.
I’m really sick of it. It’s noon and he’s still sleeping it off.
I don’t like Al-Anon’s 12 steps. I think more personal responsibility needs to be taken. What do I do?!
Wow. Maybe I looked at the wrong 12 steps. The ones I looked at basically talked about how we, as “victims” of alcohol, are powerless against it.

Is AA Any Good? What Are the Benefits?

Question by GenericMan: Is AA any good? What are the benefits?
Do the AA meetings work etc? I have been to ONE meeting and found the people there either to be pathetic, highly insecure, neurotic (in the case of a woman there), blissed out on some buddhist mumbo jumbo, lying or just a bit stupid. I think it’s good for me as I walked out of there thinking ‘Wow, I’m glad I’m not like any of those losers’. The whole idea of ‘higher power’ sounds stupid to me – I have no spiritual feelings at all and find religion to be totally retarded. Also the idea of saying ‘Hi I’m John and I’m an alcoholic’ – it’s stupid, like constantly bashing yourself over the head with this ‘problem’ when you don’t want to have the problem, just want to move away from it.
I will probably go to another meeting because as I said it reinforces that I am much better than the lowlifes I meet there.
