Alcoholic husband

Dear Queenie,

  I drink too much when I don’t feel good. I try not to, but I like a clean house and my wife isn’t a very good housekeeper and when I come home to a messy house sometimes it gets me started drinking and I just can’t stop.

  Queenie, what can I do besides moving out and getting a divorce?—Alcoholic husband

Dear Husband,

  You could start by helping your wife with the housekeeping when it gets too messy, instead of drinking. Perhaps if you show her how to do a few things her housekeeping will improve.

  As for your drinking, find and join a local Alcoholics Anonymous group.
