Stay strong Hun and don't second guess yourself.
My exh was the same turned it back on me and tried to tell me it was all normal behavior and that I'll never find someone who doesn't drink (DP hasn't had a drink in 9 years)
We went to marriage counseling too where our counselor explained to him it was important to me and like you he changed initially but then got angry and me.
Don't lower your expectations if you feel so strongly about them
I wish you the best of luck xx

I totally get why you did it, I grew up around an alcoholic. But as someone that used to have an addiction - nicotine, it may do more harm than good.
Probably less than 6 months before I gave up for good, my eldest saw a smoking ad and went and threw my packet of cigarettes in the bin without my knowledge or permission. I was furious. I felt like I was being backed into a corner, like I was being forced and emotionally blackmailed. Needless to say I kept smoking. Then one day I got my long awaited BFP and haven't had a smoke for 2 years.
He won't give up drinking bc there is none left in the house. If he does kick the habit it will be bc HE wants to. I'm not defending him in the slightest, I have zero sympathy for him and he needs to get his sh*t together. I'm just saying pouring it down the sink probably won't work.
If you've talked to him, attended counselling etc, there is nothing more you can do. If it were me I'd be packing his stuff up while he is at work, dropping it off at a friend or family's house and telling him he isn't coming home until he's been clean and sober and attending AA's for 6 months.
